Nslookup

Nslookup sends queries to Internet domain name servers. It has two modes: interactive and non-interactive. Interactive mode allows the user to contact servers for information about various hosts and domains or to display a list of hosts in a domain. Non-interactive mode is used to display just the name and requested information for a host or domain.

Options:
  • ANY
  • A:    the host's Internet address.
  • CNAME:  the canonical name for an alias.
  • MX:   the mail exchanger.
  • NS:    the name server for the named zone.
  • SOA: the domain's "start-of-authority" information.
  • PTR:  the host name if the query is an Internet address; otherwise, the pointer to other information.
