Looking for a person via his email or IP





rafifaisal
Hi people,
I have a nasty problem on my forum.
One of the registered users (who i banned now) wrote ugly things about me and others.
I have his email and ip address and I know it is someone from my neighbourhood as he knows a lot.
Is there a way to know who this person is by his email or ip adress.

Kind greetings

The only way to do it would be to ask his ISP for details. However, they are HIGHLY unlikely to do that.

Anononymity is both the beauty and the downfall of the internet.

For the IP address... You could do a whois lookup on the IP address... A typical whois output would be something like:

Quote:
darwin@excelsior:~$ whois 66.249.89.99

OrgName: Google Inc.
OrgID: GOGL
Address: 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway
City: Mountain View
StateProv: CA
PostalCode: 94043
Country: US

NetRange: 66.249.64.0 - 66.249.95.255
CIDR: 66.249.64.0/19
NetName: GOOGLE
NetHandle: NET-66-249-64-0-1
Parent: NET-66-0-0-0-0
NetType: Direct Allocation
NameServer: NS1.GOOGLE.COM
NameServer: NS2.GOOGLE.COM

And as for the e-mail address, you could do a finger lookup on the user@host

A typical finger output should be something like this:

Quote:
darwin@excelsior:~$ finger
Login Name Tty Idle Login Time Office Office Phone
darwin Darwin Bautista *:0 Jun 18 19:19


Note: this is a local finger lookup

Although I doubt that you could finger a user@host because most probably, finger connections to remote hosts are blocked.

The whois lookup would be very useful though. It'll tell you the "owner" of the IP address or IP block.

I hope these help...

Yeah bro Twisted Evil but that kind of people is better to ignore.Because then they wiill faster leave.If you try to stop them in evertythign they will try with all forces to do by theirs.

rafifaisal, just find his ISP and call them.

With some simple social engineering, you can easily find his phone number or even the address.
With social engineering it's also possible to close his connection(at least temporarily).
