Does anyone know...
Does anyone know, if i have the IP address of a server, could i get in the server and see (or copy) its files?

What kind of server?
If its an FTP server with anonymous access, then Yes.
But, if its just a windows based computer without file & printer sharing enabled, firewalled and just serving say a web site or windows NT login scripts or something.... then its more difficult... Basically what you're asking is how do I hack into a server? Well the answer is you go away and read about different types of server, ports, exploits, attack methods and **** like that first, then come back here and ask specific questions...
If you're asking if you give someone your IP can they get into your computer, then, as long as you're security conscious, use a firewall & don't use Windows file & printer sharing, then you're pretty much safe from most people [though a determined hacker could get thru anything given enough time... always check your firewall logs for unusual activity!]

A bit more info for you:
If you type the IP into internet Explorer [or any other web browser] you'll get it connecting to port 80 [http] and if a web server exists at that IP address it will serve the web pages, provided it is set to allow anonymous access [nearly all http servers are!]
If you type it in to IE and then put a :21 after it
It will attempt to connect to an FTP server, if it has anonymous access, you will get a directory listing much like in Windows explorer / 'My Computer'.
Connecting to other ports will most likely require specialised programs, but you could try :8080 in Internet Explorer, its an alternative http port that is fairly common if 80 is [a] already used, or [b] not available.
A port scan should tell you more about what ports are open, and if 135 and 139 are open then you can be pretty sure its a Windows box with file & printer sharing enabled... I can't remember details on how to get that IP into your local network so you can browse the contents just like it was in your local LAN, but when I find them I'll post 'em here. I have too many documents and books about security!!!

sorry, i was gonna say that port 139 is called NetBIOS Session...
If you do a search at Google (www.google.com) for that you should get some info!

It seems that Microsoft themselves are willing to provide information on how to do exactly that (connect to a NetBIOS over TCP/IP using an IP address... provided you know the share name)

What is TCP/IP and where i can download sub7?
November 26th, 2001, 05:44 PM
go here for a tutorial made by one of our members. As for sub 7 goto astalavista.com or google then do a search for it.

I'm Laughing so hard right now.
what the hell is going on here. What is TCP/IP and where can I get Sub 7 funny. Well if your not going to be specific about TCP/IP then I will tell you, everything that is connected to the net has to do with it.
As far as Sub 7 go find a lame skript Kiddies website and download it from there. Or better yet make your own trojan, that way you can be sure you won't get deveated by Anti=virus scanners, and software. But you probably don't know how to program so nevermind then.
Thanks man I needed a good laugh.
Try looking it up, also do the forum search on AO becuase I'm sure your someone posted a Tutorial about TCP/IP
Transmission Control Protocol/ Internet Protocol.

Don't know about sub7, but TCP/IP is the protocol on which computers communicate across the internet.

You might say it's the foundation of client/server computing nowdays.
Explaining TCP/IP isn't done in a flash, but i basically works like this: Each computer on the internet has it's own unique IP-address, and computers communicate with eachother using these addresses.
You've maybe heard about the term ports, like mail is sent over port 25, and HTTP is using port 80?
Every application has to use one of these ports when sending data over TCP/IP. When you surf the net, enter a URL and press 'enter', a message is sent over TCP/IP to port 80. The web server is listening on that port, and will get the message. Then it'll send you the page that you've requested.
I won't go into more details, because this is pretty complicated stuff. But it's really quite facinating, though, how the system works. So it's worth a study.
You better read some books about the subject. Here's a good one: Andrew S. Tanenbaum: Computer Networks. You can probably get it at Amazon.

Isn't this an anti-hacking site?
