IP from disconnected user

Post by Ithron » Fri Feb 09, 2007 12:02 pm

How can I get information (nick, host...) about an disconnected user if I only know the IP? (such as the whowas cmd).
thx, Ithron

Check the ircd.log file (or any other log file you may have).
Computers are machines that cause trouble you wouldn't normally have if you wouldn't have a computer.

Hitman: I want it to identify a website spammer. i am sure that he was connected with the same IP on IRC and on HTTP and i logged the IP from HTTP... I don't think that this helps you more ;)

Grunt: In ircd.log file, i see only the hosts, not the IP's, eg:
[Thu Feb 8 15:52:43 2007] - Connect - NICK!xxx@i3ED6DBD7.versanet.de [VHOST Prefix-3312C20F.versanet.de]
is there a way to display the IP's in the log-files?
Im using Unreal3.2.4

In mIRC:
/dns i3ED6DBD7.versanet.de

In a DOS window:
nslookup i3ED6DBD7.versanet.de

In a *NIX shell:
host i3ED6DBD7.versanet.de

Mh, it seems that you didn't understand me...
the log-line was just an example for Grunt that i can't see the IP's in the log-files.
My question was, how to get information about an user only knowing the IP...

well if all you have is the IP and your logs show the IP in them, then grep the logs for that particular IP...else figure smth out with a channel bot or smth

If you only know the IP and the logs show the reverse host for the IP's why not just do a lookup on the IP to find its reverse host yourself?


nslookup IP

host IP

Having done that you can then search through the logs for the reverse host name instead.
