How is your computer supposed to know which other computer you want the
IP /of/, and how is it supposed to reach it to "ask"? It's the same as
saying, "Honey, what was that nice man's name?" Now, if you knew a
hostname, or NetBIOS name, or something, you'd have a starting place.
But it sounds like you don't.
