    Hi all,
    I have a software TcpView' it is freeware, and can show the IP who connect
    to your PC.

    But after I am using ICQLite and the remote are using WinXP and enable the
    XP default firewall, I can't find this user's IP again.

    Do anyone know other software that are powerful enough to find other's IP

    AFAIK you have to initiate a file transfer to catch an IP address. Did you
    do that ?

    Most communications would go through the ICQ server, unless you start a file
    transfer to someone, in which case a direct connection to the other ICQ
    client is then established. You can then view the IP addresses involved.

    I think 'netstat -a' will work just as well, from a command prompt, but
    TCPView should do the job well too.

    Corrections welcome.
