Where to trace IP addresses?

Discussion in 'Site Security & Legal Issues' started by powerstroke, Mar 14, 2004.

  1. Can I find software to trace IP addresses? I am using the trial version of visual route, but know that there are many others out there that are more accurate. I have plenty of people that join and want to confirm the area they reside.

    www.dnsstuff.com has almost every tool out there, and it's free and located all in one nicely laid out page.

    I use it all the time.
     
  4. Okay. How do you find more info, like e-mail addresses from that IP address? Is there any unique ways of setting a trap? I have an ip address and I did a search and was shocked at what I saw. I also did a trace on who owns the IP and yes they do use this service provider. This guy used a redirect from a college and I contacted the Webmaster and he gave me the origin IP address.

    This person degraded everyone's posts and threads for years. I want to really nail down who this guy really is. I am 75% certain who it is, but want to be REALLY sure.

    This person posted a cut away picture of a moderator's girlfriend over a naked picture. He mocked the tragic deaths of the 9/11 victims as a Canadian and so on and so on. BTW, He is not Canadian! lol

    Thanks for the info!!! Those sites REALLY helped!

    I just checked all three tools listed on my IP - I am in Brisbane Australia and I use a small local ISP.

    Geobytes could only trace to 66% and located me as Adelaide (way way out)

    Network tools does not seem to recognise me at all

    The best and most accurate was dnsstuff

    It really depends on where your ISP has the IP addresses registered. For example, when I do a search on my IP, which is static, it shows that I am in a city about 150 miles away in a different state. My assumption is that my ISP, a larger cable provider somehow must have servers in that city or they registered the IPs from an office in that city or something??? So it is really difficult to accurately narrow down IPs.

    Sometimes they are quite accurate. Thanks for sharing the links above, when I had VB2, there was a hack that automatically chaged the IP address that our mods and admin could see to a link to http://www.networldmap.com/TryIt.htm?GetLocation with the IP address tagged to it, so all you had to do was click the IP address in VB and it would give you the location, it was a very handy tool. I'd like to see that hack released for VB3, I'm sure it wouldn't be to tough to convert, I think it was mostly template mods.

    Good discussion...

  8. I have tried it out on several members that I know for a fact of where they live and it was very accurate by town. Thanks for the heads up. Those were great sites. I prefer the Geobytes one.

    I was also thinking, "Hey, they should make a hack for this!!!!" :)

    Simple easy way to trace people and IP without efforts !!

    Simple easy way to trace people without efforts !!
    You can use netstat -n while transferring the file or viewing the webcam of ur target
    ideally you can use trace the IP of the person u r talking to on yahoo messenger by following steps.

    1.) First Invite the person to a webcam or view his webcam. Transfer of any file thru messenger will also do.

    2.) Then go to DOS prompt and type netstat-n and view the open ports and connections.

    3.) Identify the one thats yahoo messenger is using (you'll need practise and your common sense for doing that)

    4.) You'll get the IP in foreign address column

    5.) Ethereal will also do BUT remember only when during webcam chat or file transfer because yahoo never connects peer to peer when chatting(all the text is relayed thru yahoo servers) but during webcam/file transfer it connects you peer to peer with that computer and you can trace your IP.


    WHY DO ALL THIS HARD WORK
    There is one very effective utility web that does all this for you in a few simple clicks. It will trace the location of the person who you want to find.

    Just use a web system at http://shivampatel.net/trace and it'll give you lots of info about your target including the IP address, location , country, city , browser, Operating System (OS) etc etc.
