Reference Guide

The HexLookup ActiveX component provides basic DNS services such as IP address resolution, reverse lookups, and obtaining the local machine name. In other words, HexLookup allows you to get complete address information about remote hosts on the Internet as well as the local machine itself.

HexLookup services complement those of other HexGadgets. These components either accept or produce IP addresses expressed as 4-byte integers. For the sake of user interfaces, however, IP addresses are typically entered and displayed as either fully-qualified domain names like "www.hexillion.com" or dotted numerical addresses like "". HexLookup provides conversions back and forth between these formats.
