In class, we learned that 184.108.40.206 is the IP address of
the CIS department web server
(whose name or "URL" is www.sci.brooklyn.cuny.edu).
Go to the
web site, where you can look up IP addresses of domain names (and vice versa).
There are many things you can do on this web site.
Find the column labeled Hostname Tests and the section labeled
Enter www.sci.brooklyn.cuny.edu in the text field and click on
(don't worry about the dropdown menu to the rigth of the text field --
you can leave that on the default value (A)).
You'll see a results page, which first shows how the domain name
search was perfomed (i.e., through a series of domain name servers),
followed by a table containing the resolution and the IP address of
the host name that you entered, in this case
Click on the IP address and you get even more information!
Your assignment is to look up at least 3 other CUNY web sites and
report the IP address.
As we discussed in class on Friday Sep 9, the IP address fields are
divided into domain, subnet and host.
Based on your search, what do you think is the CUNY domain?
Explain your answer.
Be sure to include in your homework the names and IP addresses of the
three sites you used.
