    Finding IP addresses on a website from where advertisements are served


    I have the following question:

    On the address "https://www.adsoftheworld.com/", find all IP addresses from where advertisements are served. Use two methods:

    1. Through browser

    2. Through Wireshark

    Compare these two methods (differences, similarities, why some method is better than the other, ...).

    Could someone explain this in details?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have some idea how to do it through browser:

    1. Go to Developer Tools (F12) > Network.

    2. Reload your page.

    3. Select one of the URLs from the domain in question. The IP will be shown under Headers > General > Remote Address.

    Is it right? But how to access this remote IP address, because it won't start in browser?

    "Is it right?" Yes, what you said will show the IP address used when the browser connected to the server to retrieve that particular resource.

    "How to access the address?" What do you mean, access it? It's an IP address. It corresponds to a server on the internet. The IP address alone isn't too useful as HTTP requests also need to pass along the hostname (like "www.adsoftheworld.com") in case the server handles multiple sites, but you can stick the address in your browser and see what happens.
