    As far as I know, msn communications are sent through a server and not directly to the user you are communicating with. As such, you have no open connection to the user and therefore no way to determine his/her IP address.

    However, I could be wrong. MSN might use direct peer to peer connections in thier protocols... if this is the case, then issuing the netstat command at a command prompt will give you a list of all open connections. You then need to determine which one of those is the address of the user you are trying to locate. This would be done through normal reverse dns resolution procedures.

    1) open the window and double click on the buddy whos IP you want
    2)enter the following text
    "Hey its me <enter your name>, whats your IP address?"
    3) wait for response.

    Response is:

    What's an IP address?

    What are you gonna do when you do get my IP address?

    Nothing consdering you asked this pretty simple question.

    Believe it or not, this "1337" technique will work for any messenger program.

    don't know much about msn but because of performance issues many programs do the following:
    - if both users are using nat (for example and can't be directly reached) send user messages to the server and users query the server.
    in this case i dont think you can know the other person ip.
    - if one of the users are not using nat(for example, or can be directly reached), establish a socket between the two computers. send messages using this socket between users.
    in this case a sniffer or even netstat will reveal the other person ip.
