How to find the computer name using the IP address in Windows XP, version 2002?

Did you find the tips above helpful? Pleas lets us know.
If you know the ip address, the fastest way I've used to check the hostname is by typing "ping -a xx.xx.xx.xx"
-a resolves the hostname of that IP address
Worse case, if ping or nslookup doesn't seem to work, a method I've used that never fails is opening the cmd prompt and typing:
"nbtstat -a xx.xx.xx.xx"
from a command prompt type in: nslookup where you put the known ip address where I wrote ip (and leave out the brackets). the local name server service should display both computer name and ip address
