Ip Tracing

  • #1
Hey i was wondering if someone could tell me the exact location of the computer from the ip address 195.93.21.33 . There is a person on this forum saying they are a famous person and we are unable to accurately check because of inaccurate tracer programs, so if anyone could trace that for me it would be appreciated.

If they are using a proxy they could be anywhere.

You can trace the location of their ISP using traceroutes, not their home location.

How would one find their home location?

I've read first hand accounts of people being able to trace somebody's home address and phone number through IP addresses. You'll have to check out forums specifically for that kind of thing you're looking for.

thanks guys, u've been so helpful
i've downloaded the "visualroute 2005"
let's say
i want to trace a hotmail address
i typed it in the right place
and then
they gave me 4 serves:

mx1.hotmail.com(reston)
mx2.hotmail.com(ashburn)
mx3.hotmail.com(redmond)
mx4.hotmail.com(chicago)

well im just a beginner in those stuff.
i have some questions:
are these cities where the main server for msn exists?

and when i get the results they give me several ip's
on the 4 servers (mx1.mx2...) which one is for the address i typed?

i guess that's all until now.
basic questions.
lol
:)

Your going on a wild goose chase. Large websites and service providers don't just use one server for their traffic. They cache the page at various locations, so if one server goes down, then you still have backup systems. One of the companies that does caching is Akamai. It was not to long ago Microsoft's website was being cached by Akamai's Linux servers.

im famous to, :). None of the websites that track ip can tell you exactly were people are, most are off a city or two, or not close at all if they use proxys as dduardo said.

I have been experimenting with this stuff a lot...The best one I have found is:

www.geobytes.com

Itz telling me that this address is in Brooklyn NY, US. But you need to be aware that anyone can use a software to fake their IP addresss.
