Default Please help.. IP address question

I have a friend that recently had her msn password changed by an unknown person. I was talking to the person that was on her account. I was wondering if there was a way I could get this persons IP address somehow. And possibily track their computer to a physical location. Any help would be great.

you can track the IP but not sure how you can get hold of it. Welcome to the forums!

you can't track exact location but you usually can narrow it down to a city or a city that's close and their isp. unless they're spoofing.

if i really want somebody's ip address i just convince them to click a link to my web server and view the logs.

is there a way to BLOCK someone from getting your IP address even though your on their website or something? I went on a site and it said something like "haha, i now have your ip address: _________________"

i was surprised they could get it so easily, how can you block it ?

Default re: ip address blocking

Sorry, but I think that it is really impossible, unless...try using a netcat shell to spoof your ip address when visiting websites. It would be kinda hard to still get a internet connectio though...try using, umm, port routing, that what it's called. Try that with netcat and see if that works. try that...

I think your refferring to those sigs. by Dana soft. The ones with the wierd characters holding a sign that says your OS, IP, and your Browser. I wouldn't worry about it. I have one, they don't get your ip it's just a command that tells you that info. They can't see it, only you.
