    Do you have his IP address? Or are you asking if you can get the IP from the scrap he wrote and then trace it?

    Stop... It's futile anyway.. Even if you know the IP there's no way to link that to a person or location. At most you will find out the ISP involved..

    Also think about proxies, tor etc. which will effectively "hide" the senders IP..

    I don't know much about okrut. I created a basic profile once but never started using it. But, normally you can't find out that type of stuff.

    Do they have privacy settings that you can set to only allow messages/comments/profile view by people who are already your "friend"?

    yaaa i am also agree with your point but their must be some method to find it out.
    people using cyber cafes are generally not used proxy server ,they only think thats creating a id with without giviing actual details is sufficient to hide their the identity.

    Well, if okrut allows you to linke images or your own content, then why not host your own content. Anyone who loads that content will be in your logs. Then just use something like awstats to analyze the data.

    Hi, phish~ can give you the technical details but the concept is that if you host your own content on another site that you control, you can use the logs of that site to see who connects?

    Now, if you can put a link on the orkut site that gets the surfer to load the content of your personally controlled site............... their details will appear in that (your) site's logs.

    The fact that this information might be totally spurious has already been discussed.

    1. A public proxy.
    2. An "owned" machine
    3. An "unwitting" proxy
    4. Tor, or similar
    5. A free wireless hotspot
    6. An unsecured wireless connection
    7. A public connection (library etc.)
    8. Somebody else's machine (school, university, work)
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
