    Few ways of doing this

    You could write a script which runs every 15 minutes on the remote computer that checks the current IP address and emails you it back to you.

    If your using static IP's then you could use a IP scan tool

    Hope this helps there may be a easier way of doing like a lookup or something along those lines if anyone knows a easier solution I would be interested aswell!

    If you ping the computer name, doesn't it reply with the IP address?
    All things are possible, only believe.

    Maybe something like this is what you need then.

    I am assuming this is a domain configuration for these computers. If so just make this bat file:
    for /f %%a in (complist.txt) do call :NextOne %%a
    goto :EOF
    nslookup %1 | find /v "domain server IP" | find /v "domain server name"

    Just change "domain controller IP" and "domain controller name" to the correct info (typing nslookup into cmd would get you both of those). Just get a txt file that has a list of your computer names. I just go to "active directory users and computers" and export a list from there. After that I just enter the bat file into the command line and redirect the output to a text file.

    Also if these are all windows boxes you could use a few wmic commands like:
    wmic /node:"@complist.txt" nicconfig get ipaddress /format:htable > output.htm

    You just need to have the adminpack installed as far as I know.
