Finding out the IP address of your chat mate in Facebook or any chat service such as Yahoo Messenger, MSN or even Orkut is not really easy but it certainly is not impossible. If you want to know the IP address of the person you are chatting with, here are 3 steps how to do it using a Windows XP or any recent Windows software:

  • First, invite him for a chat and while chatting with him, open your Command Prompt Window on your PC which is found when you click the start button, then click Run and then CMD. As you do this, it is important that you close all other programs, close all other tabs and clear the recent history of your web browser.
  • Once you're in the command prompt button, enter the command "netstat -an" and hit enter. Doing this will get you a list of all the established IP connections in your PC. You would need to note down all suspicious IPs.
  • Lastly, you would need to trace the IP address used by your chat mate. To do this, you will need to use an IP tracer service. There is numerous free IP tracer service available online so all you need to do is make a quick search on Google. When you have found one, paste the IP addresses that you listed and you will now get all the information about your chat mate, including his Internet service provider and his location. Usually, IP tracer services will have a map feature where you can actually see the exact location of your chat mate.

If you have a serious reason why you want to track your chat mate in Facebook, you can note down the user's ISP details and contact the internet provider to help you with your problem.
