  • Use this software ::

    IP Finder 1.0

            This is a simple program that gives you your IP address for any program that may need it. If you are a gamer or use certain chat programs, this will help you out.

  • You can't know the ip addresses for most messengers and IRCs. Its because, you are never connected to the person directly, instead you are connected to the person via a relay server. You get the ip address of the relay server, not the person.


    In some cases, such as when you have DCC chats in IRCs, you can get the ip address of the person but this is not the case in MSN,Yahoo, Google Talk, etc as it would be a serious security risk.

  • Yeah I also think that it`s impossible to know IP of the person chatting as during chatting we r connected to

    central server instead directly to the person. So, the IP which we will get will be of the server not

    of the person we r chatting
