you can find the file with the "find" command.
find . -inum 12456
will list the file.
cat `find . -inum 12456`
will therefore view the file whose inode number is 12456.
Of course you will have to fill in the root of the filesystem whose inode number you want instead of "." if you don't know for sure that hte file resides in or below the current directory.
