Looking Up Hosts and IP Addresses: Yet Another Tool

Filed under: My Software,Networking — Didier Stevens @ 19:30

One last thing regarding my TeamViewer research: I had to resolve a bunch of hostnames and IP addresses, so I quickly wrote a Python program that did just that. Later I took the time to make some generic and versatile programs: lookup-hosts.py and lookup-ips.py.

lookup-hosts.py takes hostnames or files with hostnames via arguments or stdin, and then uses getaddrinfo to lookup the IP addresses. And you can use a counter if you need to lookup sequentially numbered hosts, like this: master[0-20].teamviewer.com. This will instruct the program to lookup master0.teamviewer.com, master1.teamviewer.com, … and master20.teamviewer.com. If you need a leading zero, use this syntax: master[0-20:2].teamviewer.com

The programs take options, use the -h option to explore them.

As it names implies, lookup-ips.py does the opposite of lookup-hosts.py by using gethostbyaddr. You provide it IP addresses and/or subnets (like X.X.X.X/24).
