okay, for all of u 8th graders out there, it goes alittle somthing like this:
u can do the nslookup to find the ip address, but the most easy way to do it is to simply ping the host name.
step 1. go to the command prompt a.k.a. “dos prompt” and type “ping —–” and whatever host u need the ip from. like yahoo would look like this “C:>ping yahoo.com” easy and simple and straight forward.
thank u cracknor

yea, good shit
one more question: how do you repeatedly ping a site? it’d be fun to overload the school server.

Go to the ms-dos prompt
ping -t -l 65500 -w 12000 http://www.yourschool.com

also, what’s it mean when it says “request timed out”?
it seems to do that only on big sites that should have protection from that sorta thing (aol, hotmail, etc). that what that is?

request timed out means that u sent data to the site but it didnt respond because of it being firewalled or other security measures, a proxy is set up, or it might just be offline.
thats cool Just0nePepsi, didnt think of that

If you use the tracert comand works as well e.g
in dos type tracert http://www.whatever.com and that tells u the ip.

so how do you stop it? close the dos window?
