Question getting info from IP address

How much info can one get about the host from just the IP address? My friend has got this guy running regular port scans on his comp and he wants to know who it is.

Well ... from an IP address, you can find the hostname, the internet service provider, rough location, time zone and a few other details ...

Got a new question for you guys. On tagboards, the IP addresses are like this:

202.158.6.*;

Is there any way I can get the full address?

Uhh ... what do you mean like tagboards ? If you mean a forum, you'll need to get higher privilages, such as being a moderator or administrator so that you have access to IP address log files
