Hello


If you know the FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) of the master computer, you can try pinging the server or using the "nslookup" command.

As an example, if your master computer's fully qualified domain name is service1.domain.com try using one of the following commands to find out the IP address:

ping service1.domain.com
nslookup service1.domain.com

Using these methods you should be able to get the IP address of the remote computer.
