Finding an IP address of a forum user (not this one!)

Q: Finding an IP address of a forum user (not this one!)

There have been several attacks on people in another forum that I visit and I'm trying to do some detective work to see if the poster is a regular poster under a different name. How would I go about this? I figured if I could trace the IP address it would give me some idea... Any other ideas?

Preferred Solution: Finding an IP address of a forum user (not this one!)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm not a computer wiz, I am just learning the basics! Please bear with me. I am trying to understand the difference between a 64bit program computer vs a 32 bit computer. I purchased a 64 based computer. Yet all of my software, and apps are being based
upon a 32 bit set-up?? I don't understand what this means? When I downloaded an anti-spyware program. It automatically set itself up as a32 spyware program. Yet my system is a HP Envy 700-074, 64 bit computer. My question, is I would like the 64 bit structure
to take control, Become the program manager. But my local 32 bit program seems to be dominating all software which I download.  I don't know exactly how to stop this??  Appreciate any advice or explanations?  If you don't mind, please try to
keep the tech advice basic.  Easy to follow?  Thank-you for your consideration and hopefully some feedback!  Simple question!    Some reasonable advice, please

I've heard that someone can find out your ip address if they monitor a website they know you go to often.

Example...... Let's say i have a website online that they are aware of, and i visit it daily. I've heard they can set something up whereby they can record all the ip addresses that visit this site.

Is this true? Is this a man-in-the-middle attack?

thanks,
d
 

A:finding ip address

Yes, Apache web server has logs which show what ip addresses are connecting to it. If the attacker can view the logs then they would know which ip's visited the site. I think IIS web server has similar logs. But they wouldn't know which ip is yours though, if they don't know what time you visited.

No, this is not called man-in-the-middle, m-i-t-m is when attackers places himself between your ip and the destination ip and relays traffic both ways, to and from. And you won't notice that some one is eaves dropping.

Hi, How Can I find out a IP address from a email someone sent me??

I know if you send someone a Picture from a Joke Website, your IP address is on the bottom of the email..

Thank you very much!
 

A:Finding IP Address From Email

I'm not too sure, to be honest.

I know that a lot of people do not have a static IP address, meaning every time they connect to the Internet, they are dynamically allocated one. That means their IP address is different everytime.

The joke website probably includes the IP address of the user at the time they were logged on to the site - just like this forum does. It is fairly easy to do with javascript.

Assuming a person owns and operates their own domain - you could visit something like http://www.network.tools.com and do a lookup on the domain part of their email address (i.e. the info after the @). But chances are that would not be them.

Above and beyond that - I don't have a clue - I hope someone can let us know as its an interesting question.

Regards

Gareth

if you are looking for some program, then i guess it wouldn't be legal. but if the email address is kind of "oficial" one then, if you google right way you may find some of personal info. i mean most of universities or enterprises give their students/employees email address which end like [email protected] or [email protected] in this case you can find a person by googling for university/enterprise.

Please excuse me if this is in the wrong forum, wasn't too sure where to post, here or the Network board.

In short, how can a website user acquire an IP address without having access to the database that logs it or admin access to view it? There is also no email that can be researched into. The user is that is tracing the IP addresses is blatantly an average computer user. If you want the full gist read on.

***
A particular group of users are using an account to troll around and make jokes (not to the annoyance of anyone worry not) but of course everyone else is trying to figure it out who the regular user is, I am well aware of who is responsible. Someone who fancies himself as a whizkid somehow managed to get hold of the IP address of this mock account. He traced the address posted where it led to (with a look-up/who-is etc), then did another but got somewhere else and yet again did another to get another place (different people using the account) then he claims each time the trace was pending. We do know the addresses are correct because of where they were ending up.
***

The mock account has no email address that be looked into or anything of that sort and only the site owner has access to user IP addresses, so basically in short we're wondering how he is acquiring the address to trace.

Please excuse me if you think this is childish, it's just a bit of fun in a close knit community trying to better each other daily with friendly banter.

There's GetMACAddress, or you can enable debugging during boot (hit space when booting and select it) and check from /var/log/syslog, or use ifconfig if your system has that command. Maybe netstat displays it, too?

So basically where I used to work, they'd twist anything about my personal life into harassment. They're probably reading this now because I've posted here in the past, so they save it in a folder and might read the forums religiously in case I come back or maybe they can find me through my i.p address. I use all different website forums a lot. When I get into a new thing, I usually have a few good questions and ask a forum. I.E, if they knew I got a dirt bike, they'd know to find dirt bike forums and read the entire thing and try and find me through context because I never use my real name. However, there have been times that I know they've read my posts because I can tell by hints they let out, but they are so out of the blue and I can't imagine how much they must have read in order to have found only a few posts by me using only context. I highly doubt they had me hacked, and again, the amount of time and effort they must have used to find me with just context and assumption is scary just to try and use anything about my personal life as harassment. So, I'm wondering if there's a 'simple' way to find my internet activity like through my i.p address? I've posted in a forum that displays i.p address, and besides, youtube makes it pretty easy to learn how to find someone's i.p. IOW, could they plug in my i.p to something and find my internet activity like forum posts or downloads or anything like that, or they just read and read... Read more

A:Help finding who owns a email address

Finding out who it is would probably take an act of Congress, but if a Yahoo! account is being used for harassment, you can report it to them from this form.

Report each email, and if they get enough, or they are bad enough, they may close the account. Won't stop the person from opening a new one, but if it's bad enough, Yahoo! might block the creation of an account from the user's IP address; which unfortunately isn't that hard a block to get around though.

Harassing/threatening emails should also be reported to your own ISP, as well as the Local Police. Don't delete them, the headers can be used to help track down the culprit. This is the only way anything might get done about it.

Search for Cyberstalking or Harassing/threatening emails and you'll find lots of info, here's just one link.

So here is my odd question. My company had an old Dell PC running XP SP3that has been disposed of. We don't have the hardware, and we don't know the serial number. All that remains of this PC is a Ghost image of the hard drive that was taken before the PC was thrown away. Now it turns out that I need to find out what the machine's MAC address was. There was just one NIC. Is there any way that I can find the machine's MAC address using only the files from that image? Would it exist somewhere in the registry or a log file? I am stumped. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I Don't know if you can find this in an image but in the image Go to Start/Run and type msinfo32.exe. In System Info on the left panel go to Components/Network/Adapter/MAC address

Hi, All,

A friend of mine is getting some harrassing email out of the blue from an unknown person that seems, however, to know my friend (or at least has access to information about my friend).

While my friend is so far ignoring the emails, and while I know they could simply block the emails, I'm worried that blocking or even continuing to ignore the emails could cause this harrassement to escalate.

So, I'm trying to find if there is a way to determine who is the physical person behind the email. The email company this unknown person is using is from here:

http://horsemail.com/

We've emailed the website, but it's a week later and we still have not had a reply from them.

Could anyone give me any information on this sort of situation and what our next move should be?

The Mac address is not being detected by my wireless router. Any one know how to find it so I can put it in manually?

Once it's on the network, use its IP address to access the printer by browser -- or print a configuration page for the network setup.  It'll show up in both places.

My AVG found two trojans today. I clicked the heal button, went to church, came home and can't get an Internet connection on that computer. I have several machines hooked up and it's the only one that isn't able to get online.

I searched and tried the ipconfig /release and renew process, it looked like that went through, but I am not able to connect after rebooting.

The info in the virus vault says one is smss.exe and one was ouviewer.dll. I don't know what else to do. I haven't deleted them yet, should I do that and then see if I can get online? Of course this is on my main computer.

Thanks.

Nancy

I work for a large organization and we have recently switched from cc:mail to Internet-based Outlook Express 5.50. One problem we have on many (not all) systems is getting outlook express to automatically fill in addresses. Although my machine does not have this problem, many of the machines I support do.
We created an address book (.csv) that we had the clients import. This contained first, last, and email address. We have had no problems importing it, and when a name is typed in, the lookup function works filling in the correct name. However, when the client trys to send, a message appears saying there is no match and a Check Names window opens with no entries listed. When I choose Show More Names, the list appears with the name highlighted. Here the name can be added to the to: field and the message is sent fine. I have reinstalled on one of the problem machines, reimported the address and the problem still occurs.
Many of these machines have a minimum of apps loaded and they are locked down showing only a Novell-delivered Apps desktop.
Any help on solving this problem will be greatly appreciated by many people.

Thank You
Lisa Merchant
 

A:Outlook express 5.5 not automatically finding address

It sounds like the problem may be coming from the import process. Is everyone else mapping the imported fields correctly? I tried several ways of importing to see if I could duplicate the problem, but I couldn't.
Are you using only one identity on each machine? You also mentioned that when you click show more names, the contact is selected. Which identity is selected in that window?

Hi, I posted in the general security board on a problem I've had with a forum I post on (not on computer subjects). A member here, Perfume, said I should tell you.

I go to a forum where one day I found myself logged in as another regular commenter there, who I suspect may be an employee of the site, but I'm not sure. I did nothing to cause this and wouldn't know how to do anything. I couldn't log out of the site either for a full day. Even when I turned the computer off I was still logged in as him when I turned it back it on. Then I learned yesterday by doing a search of my real name that it was made into a user name for this site by I think the same guy who I was just describing. I think this because he was there talking to the new user name (my real name) as though he was friends with him or something (sock puppeting).

So I'm wondering what might have happened. Could he have also had access to my computer files and passwords? I can't confidently complain to the site if I'm correct about him working for it - might make things worse maybe? Any way to prevent this in future? Any insights appreciated. Thanks --Tom

hi all...
Got a new PC last night and now I start the endless task of saving files from my old PC to CD so I can transfer it to the new PC.
My question is....
How can I find the folders for Netscape, IE 6.0 and MSN 8 that hold my favorites, saved emails and address book?
Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thank You
 

A:need help finding favorites/address book/saved emails...etc

Well your bookmarks and favorites ypu shoud be able to 'export' to a location of your choosing. It will be a HTML file for your browers. OE also has an export function.
