PING, so use; Ping ComputerName or Ping IP_Address

I wish the Microsoft exams were this easy

depends on what you mean by "find"...you can't find a computer's physical
location at all, unless you have a third party program where you actually
TELL it where the computer is located...
if, by "find" you mean "test connectivity"....then "ping" is the tool to
use.

I suppose "tracert" is also "finding" the remote computer as well, as it
gives you "directions" on how to get there...

PING IS NOT USE TO FIND COMPUTERS ON NETWORK, PING IS USE TO TEST
CONNECTIVITY.

c:\>ping ip_address or computer name

correction. You CAN find an IP address of a computer if you know the domain
name.

ping microsoft.com will return the ip address of that computer

pathping is a better tool. It will tell you the route to the destination pc
from yours.

for example:

C:\>pathping rogers.com

Tracing route to rogers.com [142.146.40.100]
over a maximum of 30 hops:
0 dataserv.roadrunner.nf.net [my ip address]
1 172.23.44.1
2 205.251.129.11
3 n090h198.thezone.net [205.251.90.198]
4 n090h210.thezone.net [205.251.90.210]
5 gw02.wlfdle.phub.net.cable.rogers.com [66.185.82.81]
6 gw01.front.phub.net.cable.rogers.com [66.185.81.18]
7 ge10-0.gwy2-tor.bb.allstream.net [216.191.65.121]
8 srp0-0.core2-tor.bb.allstream.net [216.191.65.242]
9 pos4-0-0.bgp1-tor.bb.allstream.net [216.191.67.46]
10 66.46.33.70
11 66.46.50.37
12 www.rogers.com [142.146.40.100]
13 www.rogers.com [142.146.40.100]
14 ^C

OR......

C:\>pathping 142.146.40.100

Tracing route to www.rogers.com [142.146.40.100]
over a maximum of 30 hops:
0 dataserv.roadrunner.nf.net [my ip address]
1 172.23.44.1
2 205.251.129.11
3 n090h198.thezone.net [205.251.90.198]
4 n090h210.thezone.net [205.251.90.210]
5 gw02.wlfdle.phub.net.cable.rogers.com [66.185.82.81]
6 gw01.front.phub.net.cable.rogers.com [66.185.81.18]
7 * ge10-0.gwy2-tor.bb.allstream.net [216.191.65.121]
8 srp0-0.core2-tor.bb.allstream.net [216.191.65.242]
9 pos4-0-0.bgp1-tor.bb.allstream.net [216.191.67.46]
10 66.46.33.70
11 66.46.50.37
12 www.rogers.com [142.146.40.100]
13 www.rogers.com [142.146.40.100]
14 * * *
Computing statistics for 350 seconds...

so if you have an internal network you could pathping to it by name or ip
and it will tell you where it is "located". It will tell you what subnet it
is in. So if you were looking for joe's computer and you were on
10.191.51.2 and joe's computer was located on 10.191.53.10 you would find
that out... if you know joe's domain name. Also works if you know the ip as
shown above as well. This tool is also good if you can't "find" joe on the
network... if there IS a connectivity problem you will see exactly where
(like tracert) as well as his ip address. Obviously, you need a domain name
or ip address for this to work. You can also use pathping by computer name
on the domain... for example:

C:\>pathping dataserv

Tracing route to dataserv [my ip address]
over a maximum of 30 hops:
0 localhost [127.0.0.1]
1 dataserv.roadrunner.nf.net [my ip address]

Computing statistics for 25 seconds...

To be exact, the DNS 'Server' will perform the resolution.
