Hi,

On a forum that I help moderate, we have just had a spamming problem. The spammer used a proxy to hide his real IP address. We could do with some guidance as to how we go about tracing his real whearabouts. Can anyone here help? It would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Thanks for that. Only problem is that entering his IP address leads back to Anonymouse.org, in Germany...how do we go about getting past that level?

Thanks,

Spinner

The info i gave Spinner was just from a google,however...A couple of years ago,i had a program from Symantec that would track and trace an ip address...Ive been trying to find it,but sadly no joy yet....

Il try to find something for you,but you may find one of the experts within PCA can help you further.
