Yes your LAN Administator can know the IP adddress assigned to your PC if he knows the name assigned to your system. When ever the DHCP server leases an IP to any System , it does record the DNS name and the IP address.

    An administrator can also find out your IP address by looking in the ARP table in either the router or on a system on the same subnet. IP addresses cannot be "hidden".

    Yes, he can find out...the question is will he think to or does he really care?
