Tracking of IP Address

Post by jipunan » Sun Mar 06, 2011 8:01 am

Hi I tried locating this particular IP adress 218.186.17.227 using geolocation and it only shows the location of the ISP in Singapore. It's a dynamic IP Address too. Is there any way that I can locate the exact location of the IP Address in Singapore? Or can somebody help me please?

You will never be able to get an exact address for the user of an ip address unless a crime has been committed. However, you can get generalized information about it:

IP address: 218.186.17.227
IP country code: SG
IP address country: Singapore
IP address state: n/a
IP address city: Singapore
IP address latitude: 1.2931
IP address longitude: 103.8558
ISP of this IP: StarHub Cable Vision Ltd
Organization: StarHub Cable Vision Ltd
Host of this IP: cm227.omega17.maxonline.com.sg

Is it true? That Dynamic IP Address is being shared with not only one user but more than that. If that is true. How are we able to track the exact user?

This says nothing about the ip being dynamic. Cable companies rarely issue dynamic ip addresses. And as with all isp's, you cannot track any user unless a crime has been committed and you bring the law into it.

Are you sure you don't mean static addresses ?My ISP will issue me a static address, but for a fee.

Static = rarely changing
Dynamic = frequently changing

As said above, cable companies rarely issue dynamic ip ranges.

Thanks.

Why does your software describe my connection as Static IP under General IP Information, Assignment, when I know it will be changed when I log in again tomorrow ?
Because it's frequently changing, shouldn't it be listed as Dynamic ? :?

This isn't my site so I can't answer that question. I'm only a volunteer here.

Thanks, it wasn't important but I'm trying to learn as much as I can about broadband and internet protocol. This is one the best sites that I have come across so far as to the information available on IP addresses. 8-)
