Finding a program's IP address to block

Q: Finding a program's IP address to block

Can someone tell me how to find a programs IP address so it cannot "call home". I tried blocking it with a firewall, but it still manages to "call home". For example, when using TuneUP Utilities 2010.

Thanks guys!

Preferred Solution: Finding a program's IP address to block

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.)

A: Finding a program's IP address to block

Use a firewall like Comodo or whatever you like. When a program tries to call home, firewall should detect the outbound connection and notify you if you want to allow or block it.

Good morning, On the very infrequent occasion when MBAM Pro happens to display an OUTGOING block message, I will try and ascertain which program on my computer is making the call using the TcpView program. Unfortunately, it seems I can never get TcpView going fast enough to catch the program responsible. (Being I use an XP Pro machine, the block message only displays the IP address).Question: Is there some other method I can use to see which application on my machine is making these infrequent outgoing calls? (HpHosts shows the IP address to be malicious and located in Germany).Thanks for any info.

A:MBAM outgoing block; Any program besides TcpView to find originating program on computer?

Yes, use procmon. Start procmon before you get the warning, and filter on "Operation is TCP Connect".

Eh, may sound kind of strange but I think I have a stalker. Over the last few months I have been getting odd e-mails from this one person who I do not know (supposedly), now I have been getting messages left on my AIM by the same person. I set up a "spy link" in my profile and I now have that persons IP address. Is there anything I can do to somehow block that address and make myself invisible to this person?

With most email clients you can just setup a rule to delete emails from a specified domain. You can set your AIM preferences to block certain users or only allow people in your buddy list to contact you.

Unless you use an ad-hoc network of some kind, I'm pretty sure they would need to go through a router that you are both connected to. You can employ MAC filters on a router pretty easily, on your computer it may be more difficult.

I am putting together an old system to use. I reformatted the 2.65 gig hard drive that I was given for free. Told it works though noisy. Ran into some problems getting win98 se installed but finally ok. Tried to install a free 3 month internet prog (bell sympatico) and when i was asked to reboot i got error msgs.

so i reformatted again thinking that maybe the internet disc was corrupted but now i have scandisk telling me that the lba MAY be incorrect.

i accepted the large disc formating (+512mb) it forced me to make a second drive. so i have c (formatted) and extended drive d (also formatted) which is active as a logical drive (or some such, the exact wording escapes me right now) what would be the best steps for me to take right now should i delete the partitions and start over and if so what exact steps should i take to partition? thanx berthasbutt

SYSTEM: P3 - clone Win2K O/S SP2 on system.
ROUTER: Linksys BEFSX41 v3

My issue:I have to block two ip addresses 1 XP PC and 1 WIN2K PC from the internet. It use to work until one day the WIN2K pc stopped working. For some reason it just doesn't block it anymore !! What is even crazier is the fact if I log in as ADMINISTRATOR on that pc I still can not access the internet, but if I go in as a normal user... I can go on the net.

I'm on a network with SERVER 2000 and 6 PC's
The DNS range (from the router) is from to 150...

The IP address of the XP machine that still remains blocked is:
WIN2K pc was and change it to just to make it within the range. Didn't work.

Can I block the WIN2K pc from accessing the net with the admin tools from the server 2000 ? or do you have any tips that I can try from the router side. Please remember it did work. All I do is windows update and norton update. Just one day it stoped working.

I have 2 computers connected to a router connected to DSL modem. Both computers have Kerio Personal Firewall. The logs keep showing that address sends out UDP through port 138. I read somewhere that this is a broadcast address. What is that?

Is it ok to block it? Will it affect file transfers between my 2 coms or the internet connection or something else?

A:Is it ok to block broadcast address?

It's a NETBIOS port for mapping a drive on the network. If you block it, it will probably affect drive mapping between the two computers. If you put your local LAN in the trusted zone for the firewall, this problem should not exist.

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?


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.

I am trying to block SMB 445 incoming requests using Windows Firewall. I have configured Inbound rule to allow only specific IP address to connect through SMB and access shared folder but the rule is not working. It allows other computers to connect and
access the shared folder.
For example:
There are 3 computers: Win7-01; Win7-02; Win7-03
Win7-01 has shared folder that should be accessible only by Win7-02 and not by Win7-03
Steps carried out:
1. Created inbound firewall rule on Win7-01 to allow SMB port TCP 445 to be accessed by IP address of Win7-02 (Under Scope tab of firewall rule)
2. Configured rule to Block (Default) connections - (this allows only rules with exceptions) 
3. Allowed only Win7-02 hostname to access Win7-01 (Under Computer tab 
4. Configured same settings for default rule - 'File and Printer Sharing (SMB-In)
But the shared folder is accessible from both machines Win7-02 and Win7-03
Please suggest if any other configuration is required to be done
Even if I reverse the above configuration to allow or block any of the other PC the firewall rule doesnt work at all. It allows any computer to access shared folder on Win7-01
Appreciate your help to resolve this issue.

I've searched all over the internet for a program that can block another program from running. I've been looking for one so I can block FireFox and MSN from running while I'm playing games. It's really annoying when I'm rendering a map in SimCity4 and MSN decides to log in, or a pop-up comes up in the middle of rendering. If you play SimCity4, then you know why I'm so annoyed about it.

I've tried WinTasks 5, but it only blocks the program if a user initiates program. Because a pop-up isn't intiated by a user, WinTasks does not block it.

Does anyone else know of a program that will completely block Firefox and MSN, but also have the option of un-blocking them after I'm done playing a game?

PS: I know I really should find a way to get rid of the pop-ups, but all my Anti-Virus/Spam/Malware/Adware programs freeze up when it tries to fix all the infected fiiles.

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.

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.

A:Finding out an IP address / tracing

Hi and welcome. The owner of the website needs to get you this info

He should just ban the IP address that the problem user is using.
