How to find internal ip for a site hosted on linux server. I have external ip of it.

"External IP" is another term for a routable IP address. When people talk about internal and external IPs, they are usually talking about a NAT router. NAT stands for Network Address Translation, and the form of it that most people are familiar with is the form that allows multiple computers to share a single Internet connection via one physical connection to the ISP. If you have a NAT router in your home, each computer connected to it has an internal IP, while the router itself is assigned an external IP. If you didn't have a router, the external IP would be assigned to whatever computer is connected to your ISP.

Hope this helps you understand. Or I'm answering the wrong Q'

Hi All,
thanks for all your help

I shall again try to explain it to you.

There are several sites hosted by our organisation.
eg, , , and so on.
There are several servers on which these are hosted.
As I am new to this environment I dont know which site is hosted on which server.
When I tried nslookup, I got routable IP (external IP). Now how can determine the on which server the site is hosted.
I know a bit of a concept which says, a site can be hosted on several servers too. If it is hosted on several diferent servers, I want their nonroutable (Internal IPs).

Is there any way I can find it.
