    When you use AOL, can people check out which state are you coming from ?
    Are those people's Ip addresses started with 176 or 172 right ? sorry I dont remember it now.

    If your not using a proxy then anyone on the net can find where you are. Just do a traceroute on the ip.

    1>Are there any exceptions ?
    Even when you can trace out the IP addresses, sometimes I guess you can only figure out the server he/she is using...
    2>Another question i'd like to make, what you can conclude about a certain Source DNS you know ? I mean what can you do with it ?
    3>How can you read the modem name that access users are using ?

    If you think this is a question for development though it is clumpsy or so, why dont you give me the answers ?
    How do you check it ?
    What tools/software do you use to do that ?
    I always heard someone say because of development, of choosing the most fitness, of taking the best one and ignoring any other things that are preventing the going-up processes, so can that someone give me some information ?
