How to Find Out a remote IP

Well, this one i think is quite intersting tweak as Lot of ma students n culleagues had already asked me this one.

After having a one day research on this, i came to this much conclusion.

Well, dere r basically these known methods for Finding out One's IP Address.

So, here we go...

Method 1

To view someone's IP# when they send u hotmail email do this:
1) Click "Options" on the upper right side of the page.
2) On the left side of the page, Click "Mail"
3) Click "Mail Display Settings"
4) Under "Message Headers" select "Full" or "Advanced"
5) Click ok

Method 2
reg a dydns account and install the ip pointer, so each time u ping the host name u regestored

for example:
u regestor the host name myhost.dydns.com, then u keep a little software running on the target host. The little software will keep update ur IP to dydns.com server.

so at ur pc just start cmd, and ping myhost.dydns.com, it will give u the most updated ip address.

Method 3
neverender, what doesn't work for u? Simply type in nc -vvv -l -p 80 on ur box, which will set it to listen in verbose mode on port 80. Then give them a link to ur IP address (for example: and tell them to type it in their browser. The browser should resolve the address as well as append port 80 automatically. Just make sure that ur friend is not very computer literate.

Method 4
Just download a very simple server such as this one and install it on ur comp. Then run it and give ur ip to the person u want and tell them to connect to it through a browser. ur server will log their connection and u will get their IP.


Other Ways
-www.imchaos.com and make a "spy poll" to put in ur profile, this will tell u the IP of anybody who answers ur poll
-originalicons.com there is a page for doin it (i dont like it, but it works)
-or irc
