Information using IP Adress.

By bsdfgs ·
I'm running a windows 98 Dell computer (it's not networked), and about once a day someone tries to make a connection with our computer (its a different IP adress every time). I would like to find out some information about these people. I've triedusing the firewall's tracking option (it doesn't work since internic.net is dead). I've also tried networksolutions.com, and they yield nothing. I also telnetted to their IP adress and found that they are running a linux server (which one would infer that it uses the same IP adress everytime). Is there anyway I can find any information about them? Thanks.

If you are not networked you have nothing to worry about.

Dialup to the Internet means you are networked.

Just because a machine is running Linux relates in no way to it being a static IP address.

I would reccomend you look into an Intrustion Detection System (IDS). The consumer end products are usually called Personal Firewalls.

The work to find out about a specific IP would likely outway it's usefulness.

You know the IP, what more do you need to know? An ISP will likely not tell you the "person" without a court order or warrant.

BlackICE defender from NetworkICE.com is a popular personal firewall.

Regards,
Brian
