    It all depends.
    If you know it, then yes it is possible.

    If you don't know it, then it still might be possible. What game are you playing?

    I'm not saying that would help anything, but I was just making conversation.
    -thanks for listening

    No it's not because it's going through a yahoo server, if you type in netstat you will get an IP address that states or gives Yahoo's addy out. for example


    you-----------------yahoo server ------------- the other guy

    The only way possible is if you direct connect which doesn't happen in Yahoo pool. Or if you hack the yahoo but that's illegal and you go to jail for life without possiblilty for parole.

    Question

    is it possible to capture the data packets that my computer sends to the yahoo server. i guess that data packet contains my opponents IP address.

    Uhm... In order for your outgoing packets to have that information... Doesn't the information have to reside on your computer anyway?

    Short answer: I doubt it. As far as you computer is concerned, there ARE no other people, just you and the yahoo server. For all you know, the other people could be bots.

    what freeon said. also for you, if you suspect someone is "hacking" you, just run netstat. it's a nice, little tool. i'm sure other progs do the same thing.
    Do it now and ask for forgiveness later

    How can you assume he is the person doing it to you? Do you have a static ip? Why would someone nuke/Packet you? Do you have other people who don't like you? Ask your self these questions before you assume you are getting nuked.. and if you are there really is nothing you can do but ... patch patch.. Its called security man... Security.. Netstat will get the ip of who ever is doing whatever to you and you know the rest of what to do. IM sure you have half a mind..
