• Well if anyone thinks you are trying to do that they will not talk to you.
  • It depends on what you're talking over. If you're talking in an IRC room for example then no, it's not possible. If you're talking directly then I believe it should be possible. You could check the list of outgoing connections on your firewall and see which IPs the chat program is connected to.
  • Yes, it is if you are connecting directly, as EndlessWaves said. If you go to a command prompt and type the command netstat -a, you will be presented with a list of all connections made with your computer, including the remote addresses. If the address is a name, it is easily converted to IP address.
  • yeah, just send them a file, let them accept and type netstat -n in yhe command prompt. But you got to guess the last two, which one it could be. It could be the IP of the im provider or the person you're chatting with. It works on aim, msn, yahoo and IRC. In IRC you can just right click them.
  • Yup. If you connect to a IRC chatroom and you are a Mod or a room founder and have the proper script, you can nail the entire IP. Mods or founders have that ability to be able to ban certain users from a room for disruptive behavior. It's not something that gets abused or the Mod is gone.
    • Bootsiebaby
      That did get abused on the old Answerbag by unscrupulous community leaders. I have evidence of it from members of the old site who I happen to know in real life.
  • I don't know, but it wouldn't surprise me.
