Not quite sure what you are looking for. DNS stands for Domain Name Server. It is a server that converts a URL/Computer name into an IP address.

All computers on the same network are likely to be using the same DNS server as it is part of the network configuration. The DNS address is really of only any interest to someone configuring a network. It is off no use to anyone outside the network that is using the DNS address.

However, if you want to find a computers IP address that is a different matter. Which brings us back to Jefros question. Is this computer on a LAN or on the Interent?

I think you are misunderstanding what a DNS is. If the computer is on the same LAN as you are it will have the same DNS address as you have.

What you are looking for is the IP address of the computer. The easiest way to do that is to go to a command prompt and type ping computer name.

Computer name being the name of the computer you want to know the IP address for. Windows will resolve the IP address for you from the computer name with its built in LAN DNS server.

You can do the same for any computer on the internet that has a URL. Type ping and it will come back the the IP address of this site which just happens to be

It was a DNS server somewhere in the big wild world the converted the URL to an IP address.
