hm, don't know if it works for msn because I almost never use it, but it works for other messenging apps:
run netstat -an
start a file transfer
run netstat -an again
the new IP which shows up is most likely the one you're looking for.
for more comfort you can use TCPview (you can find it in the downloads), it has a GUI and is good for other issues too (like checking for trojans). maybe you can even skip the file transfer part, on yahoo messenger you can get the IP by simply sending a message for example...simply test a bit together with a friend... :wink:

On april fools day 2 years ago, i told my friend i had just finished coding a game in C++ (i used to code C++) and asked if he wanted to try it out. He said okay, and i sent him a zip file with a batch file, netcat, and a file filled with nulls called data.ins. While i was sending him the file, i did use netstat to get his IP address. I told him to run the batch file, and that his firewall may pop up because the game is gonna get some files from my server. Next thing he knew, his computer was sending him love messages. :)
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It works on my machine...

Couldn’t you have him send you an email, once received look at the full header? It might tell you his address. I guess if he resides behind a router then no luck. Maybe wroth a try.

netstat

i dont use msn either :/ but "netstat -o" will list the process IDs related to the IPs/ports listed. then you can check the process ID in task manager [[click 'view' dropdown menu and select "select column..." then PID checkbox on top left to make task manager shows the process IDs under the processes tab]] you can also check this with all the PIDs listed under "netstat -o" to see what is actually accessing the internet from your computer.

email is the easiest way...

web host as a IP grabber

Post by DNR »

Some web host will provide visitor hit nfo on your website (usually a paid web host not a free one) or you could set up your box to run http port 80. You'll send the target a link to a site that will attract them, not nessarily porn, but maybe a song or movie link. When the target visits your web server, you'll have his IP. You could have the webpage install malicious code or just have a trojan or virus as a download on the page if the target is dumb enough to click on it.
If a computer hides behind a router, try a webbug. When the target computer requests your 1x1 pixel dot stored on your computer, you'll have its IP.

These techniques can collect more nfo with server side code to detect OS, browser type, etc. Therefore giving you the nfo you need to fingerprint it or kill it.
