Finding out an IP address / tracing

Q: Finding out an IP address / tracing

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.

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 need a way to find out who is behind an IP address. They left a nasty comment on my site and I want to know who it is. Anyone have an idea of how I can do this for free?
 

A:Tracing an IP address

You find out what ISP this IP address belongs to.
Doing a traceroute on it is the first step. This way you could even find out if the IP belongs to some company/institution or if it is a home user.

Then you call the ISP and ask them to whom this address was assigned to at the time of posting the comment. You need to give them a very good reason to give out that information though. Especially with this RIAA thing going on.

I was wondering if anyone might happen to know as to how I might be able to find out where an e-mail really came from. I'm using Outlook 2010 and I'm aware of checking the header information, but I'm not quite sure as to which one of the received from IP's might actually designate where the person is actually sending the e-mail from.

Here are the headers of two e-mails that I have. If you can tell me as to where they are really from, then I would appreciate it because as to date I haven't been able to figure it out.

[E-mail headers removed by Administrator]
If you can tell me as to what lines to really look at to determine where these e-mails actually originated from then I would greatly appreciate it.

Both individuals are using Yahoo. I'm not sure if that makes a difference or not, but I thought that I would include that bit of information as I've been trying to understand this better for a long time, but with little to no success.

The sender of the first e-mail indicates that they are in London.

The sender of the second e-mail lead me to believe at the time the e-mail was sent that he was in the United States. I first thought that the guy was in Tennessee, but he later said that he was in Texas.

What I'm trying to determine is as to whether someone really is in the Country, city, or state that they claim that they are or if they are actually just telling me a lie.
 

A:E-Mail Address IP tracing

Unfortunately, a whois lookup on the sender's IP address will only return Yahoo's location in California. In this case, there's no way of knowing the location of the sender.

If the sender were using an email client with a local ISP, then you could at least know from which city the email messages were coming from. Keep in mind though that these lookups are never really accurate.

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

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.

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

Looking through my Document File "Alpha Address List"I accidently replaced the file with a Blank File of the same name . When I tried to open it there was nothing in there. I looked in the Recycle bin there were no files in there at all. Where had it gone ? How could I find it and restore it?

I believe I made a grave error next as I went into the Recovery Programme and picked a recovery point which was 4 or 5 days back from the day my "Alpha Address List" file went missing. When the restore had been completed I looked at the "Alpha Address File" and just a blank copy of that was there.

I realise now that all the recovery programme did was restore the Windows System Files and not the Office 10 personal document "doc" files.

It may be a lost cause now but is there any way I can retrieve the "Alpha Address List" file back .

Any assistance wiould be appreciated

This seems like such a simple question that I am almost embarrassed to ask it. I use MS Outlook on my home PC and also on my laptop (I also use XP on both). I want to copy the address book / contacts from the home PC to use on my laptop. But I can't seem to find the database to copy. Having Googled the question, I searched for *.pab files, and *.wab files (which I understand is the extension for the address book) but didn't find any. Another suggestion was that it could be within contacts in the .pst file. That I found! But when I tried to copy it I received a message that some program had 'locked' a portion of the file and it couldn't be copied! Surely it can't be that hard! Can someone please help with this 'minor' incovenience? Thanks in advance.

A:[SOLVED] Finding Outlook Address Book Database

Open outlook and go to the File menu and select Import and Export. Export the address book first. Under Choose an action to perform click Export Internet Mail and Addresses if the option is available (I am at work and exporting data has been disabled by sys admin so I am unsure of the menus passed there) .

After exporting them, you should be able to follow the same process to import them after transferring them to the laptop.

edit: Which version of outlook are you using? Outlook express, MS Outlook, and which year?
