Thanks for the reply, nope i'm the admin but i've reported many times but still no action taken.

I suspect the forum member is someone i know and have been leaking my FB info to forums..

Is it possible to check the ip address of his facebook login and forum member login?

In general only a forum admin can get access to the IP addresses of the forums they run.

Chrispcritters is right with his answer "can get access to the IP". This IP is only reliable IF and ONLY IF this forum member created there his/her account with his/her TRUE IP (i.e. not via Proxy or VPN). Otherwise the answer is NADA. Neither IP nor MAC. Hacking to a Forum server? Don't read too much science fiction, my french Chan. One can only hack into a system when a) that server freely allows to access remotely (e.g. via Telnet) b) the hacker got the luck to implant a cookie or a Trojan inside that server c) the hacker is the admin himself :evil:
Possibility a) and b) is very unlikely. Possibility c) is likely :mrgreen:
