whois like functionality on Windows?

I am migrating a website from a UNIX based machine to an Windows
machine. In the logfiles I got from the old machine I mostly got domain
names and sometimes only IP addresses. The Windows machine seems to
produce only IP addresses.
Somehow I cannot find a windows solution to translate an IP address back
into a domain-name. Searching with Google shows that more people have
been wrestling with this problem.
I did find working whois scripts, but unfortunately:
- the verbose whois registrar information often forbids automated access
- the information is rather distributed, so you have to somehow access
- you still have to find the domain name in the sea of details returned
I also found socket based solutions, but these solutions crash with the
message "host not found" :-(
kind regards, Gerrit
