>> zen-1.0.PS.Z 

The extension .PS.Z means that it is a UNIX compressed file and that
it will uncompress to a POSTSCRIPT file. It is not a ZIP file as
many people have thought:-)

On many Unix machines there is a utility called nslookup. You can use this
to find out IP numbers if you know the IP address. Fire it up on your machine
and see what happens... here is what happens on mine.

sun4 /csc/harper 42> nslookup nic.funet.fi

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    nic.funet.fi

All the best
