Finding IP of MSN, Yahoo users!

MSN is routes the connection through a microsoft server while you are chatting. However, when a file is sent, a DCC (direct connection) is created. This was purposely done because otherwise microsoft would waste alot of bandwidth so a direct connection is made. This is your chance.

Start a file transfer between u and ur target (preferably send large file), open up your command prompt (run “cmd” in NT/XP or “command” in 9X to get into prompt) and run netstat.
Usually the MSN targets IP would be above port 2000!

If u recieve some crap like as the target, do a reverse DNS lookup on it. However, this occurs very rarely, mostly u will recieve a clear IP!

You can use similar trick to find IP address of Yahoo users!

Now to protect yourself against this, you can use a proxy server.

This only gives u the server address of yahoo n not the users ip address so dont get happy. it aint that easy

Are you sure? Because its impractical (Read uneconomical) to route files via server!
If you are talking about ISP, NAT or any other intermediate entity who may be hiding final IP address then almost all tricks will fail!
Anyway will update with recent info regarding this soon!
Thanks for your comment! 🙂
