    Hello, I am sorry if this is not the correct forum, But I am trying to find out how to get another persons IP. I recently opened an Online Service, and am trying to learn how to get somebodys IP if something happens. I usually do business over Online chat messengers, like AIM. I have tried netstat -a -b -n but It is just to hard know that most chat messengers, including AIM directly connects the people who are talking to there servers, and random ports. Please if anyone knows how to get someones Ip, I would really appretiate some helps! You can message me on here, or catch me on AIM at Illidansowner

    AIM, ICQ MSN and the like all have security features built in that mask users IP addresses. This is to prevent malicious attacks. If you want to be secure in your buisness and have access to client records of the type you are requesting, do your transactions (even chat) over a secure SSL connection on a webserver.

    Basic rule, if you dont host it, you dont control it, and therefore you dont have access to the logs.
