    udp question

    Is there anything out there that will help give you an email address from an ip? I'm thinking something like an udp port translator..maybe I'm off here. Any clues?

    Not quite sure...but probably not. IPs can be very volatile, and you can't get much info from them, besides the ISP.

    Haven't heard anything about a "port translator" before, TCP or UDP. The only thing that comes up to mind is a NAT...?

    Please, if I misunderstood you, correct me.

    erm, you aren't going to get anyone's email address from their ip. You may get the email address of a net admin by doing a whois of the ip and seeing who owns that ip/block.

    in answer to your question: no you cannot get a specific email addr from an ip addr.

    It dependes on what you are trying to acheive.

    For example, today I have emailed a number of abuse@ mail addresses because a number of IPs have been attempting port scans. For this purpose I used whois and host - Sam Spade will also perform the same tests for you.

    However if you want to mail the person at that IP address this presents a number of problems.

    The address may not be that of an individual, but may be the address of the internet router that is providing NAT routing for a network. If you use whois to find out who owns the IP you could then mail postmaster@.....

    You could test to see if that IP is running a mail server by using telnet a.b.c.d 25 and see if you get a reply - if so you should be able to send mail to postmaster by pointing your mail client to the ip address but this is not an entirely legitimage method for delivering mail.

    What are you trying to acheive?
