    For those of you who went to samspade.com and noticed theres nothing there about IP tracing and what not.. The actual site is www.samspade.org

    Just a little clarification

    Hmmm I now have an identity issue: AO's IP LOcator places me in Troy, NY< USA... but I know I'm not there.

    [P.S. It's okay, I know how it goes ]

    Also remember, the 'location' of an IP address is only that of who registered that IP block. My ISP is about 50 miles away from my house, so an IP locator would give my location as that. For an extended example, if I set up a Dial-Up account in Belgium, and dialed across seas from the US, if you traced me, it would appear that I don't even live in the western hemisphere. So remember those IP locators are not too exact.

    Even more. I guess it's all about the company that's distributing it... I mean, I know someone else had my IP, maybe someone in Troy, NY. But I guess the location was not updated or something..

    hypronix > Someone else cannot 'have your IP'. The IP addresses are owned by the ISP or corporation that purchased them. Tracing programs have nothing to do with the person connected to the internet, and they have nothing to do with tracing people. Their names are misleading. All that a 'tracing' program does is do a whois on the IP address, and see the address that they have registered when they purchased that IP or IP block and then relate that postage address to the state, zip code, street, et cetera. You could be an IP tracing program if you just query'd the arin whois database with an IP address then went to mapquest and entered in the address that it said it was.
