Hmmm

Where is it that you can find out information about a particular IP address?
Like where it is coming from?? there was like a dos command do to a trace or
something on it but i also thought there was an internet resource to tell me
like what ISP etc it belongs to ?

That’s the DOS command he’s looking for. To find the ISP that owns the IP
block, send a whois query for the IP address to whois.arin.net. e.g. if the
IP is 1.2.3.4, first try 1.2.3.4 and if that doesn’t work try 1.2.3, etc. –
Sam Spade for Windows does this aucomatically

Sam Spade for Windows is a great tool for this, BTW. All in one package, it
does ping, dns lookup, whois, IP block lookup, traceroute, finger, RBL
lookup, abuse address lookup, raw http, and if you’re really daring you can
turn on the ability to do dns zone transfers and smtp relay probing.

There are actually 3 different whois servers that need to be looked at.
Once is for asia, one for europe, and one for the americas. I was
playing around with it (as a possible feature on coolwhois) a few months
ago and you can access it at:
http://www.coolwhois.com/ip.php?d=webdiscuss.com

Just replace the ‘webdiscuss.com’ with the hostname or ip address you
want to lookup.

I forgot because SSW does this automatically for me (okay, that’s my last
SSW plug for this thread)
