Huh? You want to get the IP address of a remote computer over the Internet? How are you gonna know what/where the remote computer is, if you don't already know its IP address? Seems like a paradox to me. However, if you want to log IPs, then you can set up code in a webpage that tracks the visitor's IP address, (from which you can get the address obviously) or if you are engaged in an IM/chat conversation with them, there are tools that get this info for you. But there needs to be some data transfer between your computer and the remote PC or between the remote PC and a server to get this info.
can u plz tell me how to track ip address while chatting in yahoo???
and yes another qouestion., once i know the ip address how to browse thru the files on the remote computer.
i am asking u this coz all my friends have the same cable connection, but the prob is we arnt given a static ip.
now we use limewire to share files among us, but it whud be benificial if there is a direct connect.
A comp is identified over the net by its IP address. after that comes other wicked stuff enoomai was right. Its a paradox. Please be more clear.
I dont think there is any sureshot way to pinpoint the geographical loaction of an IP address. You can look out for IP addresses from the netstat -n command and then perform a tracert of the IP. You may get some server names that may suggest the loaction. As for the Windows GUI tools, I have never tried them
