Function to retrieve domain name for an IP address?

P: n/a
ITM
Does anyone know of a way to do a reverse DNS lookup in MS-Access? I
have a table containing a list of IP addresses, and I want to display
the domain name for each address.

I've seen some stuff for IIS/ASP, but we don't run IIS, so I'm looking
for a (hopefully free) solution that will run standalone in MS-Access.

TIA for any advice

Randy Birch has sample code to obtain the host name from an IP address at
http://www.mvps.org/vbnet/code/netwo...namefromip.htm

(Note: Randy's site is aimed at VB programmers, so sometimes the code won't
port cleanly into Access due to differences between the two. This particular
example looks as though there shouldn't be any issues, though.)

You have to look up the article... that's the title, though.
