One way might be to portscan your network, assuming the server is the only box listening on that port (or that there aren't many boxes listening on that port). For example, if your server is listening on port 22 you might do something like:
Code:
nmap -p 22 192.168.1.0/24
That said, you should consider having a DNS address for the server so that you don't need to remember IPs.

Just open a terminal on the server and do

/sbin/ifconfig

Right, although that implies physical access, which I assumed he didn't have/want based on his "from my Ubuntu PC".

Well, if its on his intranet, I assumed he'd either have access, or knows someone who does, although in that case the sysadmin prob knows the ip anyway.
Different if we were talking about a remote system, outside his company/org.
