Those *are* normal internet (IPv4) addresses.  Do you mean you want to
reverse-resolve these into hostnames?  Any standard DNS tool (probably
either 'host' or 'dig', depending on how much information you want)
can do this.  Of course, there's no guarantee any particular IP
address will reverse-resolve.
