where can I find some? Or what type of search should I do? I'm looking for uttilities that can help me find information about a certain ip address that is port scanning me and trying to connect to my computer. I'm not sure why or who they are, so I'd like to figure it out. Thank's
or there are several software packages out there, one good one for Windows I cannot remember the name of, and its driving me nuts, cause I have it on one of my windows boxes.

A lot of ip tools are already into your pc.
On Windows you have tracert, nslookup... type their names in a dos prompt or in the Windows help to have info about.
There also a lot of tools you can find on internet, use google, you will find variations of traceroute, soft including some simple tools in an easy to use interface...
Read tutorials about this on AO, they'll explain you how to find info with those tools.
http://www.samspade.org - many usefull tools for lookups
nitrous.digex.net - do your lookups from MAE East, MAE West or a couple others listed.
visualroute.com - get a visual of approximate location of the IP in question
Hope this helps. Regards.
<edit> It seems I was beaten to samspade.org. Sorry for the dup. </edit>
