    Question Determining ISP from an IP address

    I know that this is a newbie question that's probably been asked before, but I tried doing searches on this site and couldn't find anything.

    I also tried searching on Google, and all I found were some sites that had some utilities to download to find this information out. However, I'm not about to just start downloading and installing any application, so I thought I'd post a message here. Does anyone know of a good app/utility/website to find this info out? My firewall's going nuts reporting this one IP address scanning like every port on my machine, and I wanna find out who it is and report him. Thanks.

    prodikal id send them a copy of the log just incase somebody hi-jacked their server.

    Well, Some ISP's tend to ping users on its network to see if the connection is still live. But 26 in 2 seconds isn't normal. Sounds like someone did a scan on you.

    As far as finding out what ips are associated with which I always use ARIN located at http://www.arin.net/whois/arinwhois.html


    Or do a search for "WHOIS" on google and you can find many more.

    Well, do to the fact that some of the ports are sequential it looks like someone scanning. You did say this was in 1 or 2 seconds right?

    Normally if an ISP does ping you its just a random high number port, but only once in a while, and not in a sequential pattern like this. I would notify it to the Admin of the network. Its kinda strange.
