How to ascertain someone's location.

I know that there are websites that offer IP address details for free. But the problem is how to find out the ip address in the first place.

Now the person I am talking about talks to me on regular basis and sends me some files through mail too. I want to ascertain his/her/its location (he/she/it claims to be in NY). Can anyone help me in this case? Is there any software which could divulge IP details? Remember I use mac so .exe files won't work for me.

Please Help.

I know how to get IP address thru gmail... open the message... next to the reply button there's an arrow pointing downwards... click on it and select "show original"... a new window pops up with all sorts of gibberish... locate "Received: From" in this and copy the IP address... go to any website which traces IP addresses (google to get a website) and get the location...

lemme know if works out... I figured this out myself... there might be other ways too... all our techie echarchans can guide you better though...

Thanks a lot Shakti pai...

It really worked...good discovery...At first there were a number of ip addresses amidst that gibberish. But then there was an originating ip which revealed that the person in question is in India only.

Some people have (like Dirty pai)this signature which tells you your ip address.... are they also privy to this information???

True ... often we knowingly pursue in total contrast to our set beliefs ... which is what adds spice to life ... or else life can become too predicatable.

A woman not willing to admit her where abouts ... has lot to hide. Not worth the effort, I think. Good luck.

May not work in all cases. What you see in mail headers is mail server (SMTP) IP adddress. I can sit in india and send my email using SMTP server in UK.

e.g. See any mail from yahoo, it shows some mailserver.yahoo.com. Infact send mail from gmail to gmail, as its on same SMTP domain, it just shows SMTP id and no IP. (atleast in cases I have seen)

Looks like it is possible to locate a person by just an email id or even an IM id.

Re: How to ascertain someone's location.

ok. I am sorry.

I admit it was me. I tried riting to you from India but you phoo phooed me ... paid no attention to my romanticness. 1st thing you asked (when I told you I am in NY) is if I am a citizen or gc holder or beautiful.

World has become tiny. How was I two no that you will appear at this sight of all the sights in the word.

I am so ashamed of meself ... today.

I am so sorry.
