    How to get the IP address of a user in a forum not hosted by me.

    I've met a woodhead in a forum. And really don't want to see that. The guy has too many ID but I am sure they are one. Just want to prove that. Is there anyway I can get the IP without breaking into the server?

    If IP viewing is disabled, then no - checking IPs will only be available to moderators and admins, so you would have to either become a moderator by gaining prestige in the forum, or report the guy to a moderator and ask politely for his IP address.

    Why don't you just let the higher guys know about him and ask them to compare the IP addresses of the different accounts you suspest? That's probably the easiest option..

    Cheers,

    I think a woodhead is akin to a peckerwood...you know...one of those stupid-white-man things.
