IP Address Tracing and Privacy
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
You see,I am trying to play a really old peice of software over the internet. It connects using direct IP addresses. It works fine over a closed network using local Ip adresses. but can i like combine the local and the foreign IP's into one. like using the foreign ip first, then add the local as an extension to it. Is what i'm asking possible
No way to know without knowing how the game works. But probably not.
you can trace the IP address of the sender of that bomb threat using the email itself,there would be an option in the email content to show all heading instead of just the name and email address of that person then what you have to do is to go to apnic.net to check the server of that IP,if your bro matches the IP,then your bro could be convicted, but if not,then he's free...
"And that leads to my final point: use a router or a firewall."
Perhaps we should settle for "use a firewall, and maybe a router". Why? Well - in case of hardware routers, they should have at least basic firewalls installed; in case of software routers (like Windows Server systems), not using a firewall is like saying that you want to be cracked by any o' n00b.
All in all, the machine that is DIRECTLY connected to the internet MUST have a firewall, PERIOD. It doesn't matter if it's hardware or software - without a firewall it's just as vulnerable.
By the way, Leo - dunno if aynone has previously suggested this (and I believe someone somewhere has, must have) - the site is a great resource to educate the less-technical family members. ^__^ I'm not really a technician just yet (still learning to become one), but I do get a fair load of admin and programming work daily, so I'm so deep in all that and I realized that sometimes I just can't "dumben" my explanation far enough for 'normal' people to understand... ;-)
By sharing photos on MSN (by sending a file), can the person on the other end find your IP address if the photos you are sending are from websites/other people or emails sent to you. But all of these photos have been saved on your computer? thanks for the help!
I have a stalker who knows a lot about me, I suspect it's one of my friends due to the information this 'person' seems to be spouting off on e-mails.
I've located some info via WHOIS, but I need to know the general location where the computer is located to tell who is the person. I am not sure what a Windows XP Command Shell is, or how to use it on my computer. I'm not familiar with this area of expertise!!
I want to know who this person is so I can see if i can/want to take legal action etc. Please help me!
The whois information is typically the best you can do. Using that you should be able to contact the ISP and have them help you further - but you'll probably need to involve law enforcement to get them to pay attention to you.
Hey Leo,,,Love the site. I have a slight problem, I've been banned from a forum and I want to get back in it. I've been reading about hiding ur ip address, there are tons of programs u can use but I'm not sure they work. Can u tell me if there is a way to change or hide ur ip address without having to purchase anything. thank u so much.
You can't change your IP address, but you can use an anonymizing service. Google "anonymous web surf" and you'll get several such services.
