    You shouldn't be able to unless MSN Messenger is really stupid for some reason. Why would you want to find someone's IP address anyway?

    through MSN you'd need to make a direct connection by sending a file or something, and then looking for changes in the results from netstat.

    I dont think this is the propper place for this, but.. anyways before you make a direct connection with that person run netstat -a and dump all the netstat data in to a file, then after the direct connection you will do the same, then you will look for the new ip , but you might not have to do this.. you can just get a smiffer and sniff out the connections ip.. but heh, why do you want there ip for anyways?

    netstat is a windows command that you type in the command prompt and it returns a list of all the connections, in order to get someone's ip you would need to directly connect to them by sending them a file or something and then using netstat to look for the new connections

    Lord was right, this isn't really the right place for this question so i've moved the thread "Windows Help". If you do actually want to use Python for interacting with MSN messenger then you should look at the MSNP project:

    http://msnp.sourceforge.net/

    or google for python and msn.

    hey, i was wondering if u can tell me how i can get an IP address through msn messenger. My brother's msn account has been hacked and the hacker has been saying rude things to the people he has on his contact list. We are trying to find out the IP address of his/her computer so that we can report him/her. Are there any download add-ons that we could use to find his/her IP address or anything?? Any Help would be greatly appreciated

    It won't do any good to report it, nothing will be done. I suggest starting a new account. I doubt Msn will do anything to the "hacker"

    Perhaps you could try to start a chat with the hacker. Then devise a method to direct connect and capture his ip address. Sincce i doubt anyone is going to do anything you could perhaps try to hack the hacker back

    Note: Scan your computer with a virus scanner. A trojan was probably installed on your computer enabling the hacker to get you brothers username and password. Perhaps you can try to use netstat to gain the ip address of the hacker. (Look for anything suspiciou) That is if he is connected. Also look for wierd port numbefrrs that are open.

    How do you get that and what do you do? This seems like a good program, that could come in handy.. Can you point me in the right direction?

    Smile finding an IP address


    the best way is to go to start then run type in cmd and then type netstat this will alert you to all activity on your network, but the best idea is to start up another account with a new password and change it frequently
