    isp addresses

    Hi I'm new here and I don't know much about computers etc.
    I post on a forum which until recently we were able to post anonamously. Now whenever we post our isp address appears if we click the mouse just after the name. The number after my name appears as 62.252.0.6. What information can be gathered from that, could someone find out which area I live just from that info.
    Also if the same number such as **5.**.*4.* appears against two names how would it be possible to find out if the same person posted under those names.

    hi,


    knowing the ip, they can do a 'whois' search on it. that will give the address,email id and phone number of your isp.Nothing more, unless the ISP releases any information about you.

    Data.
