IP Hidden or not (using netstat -n command)?

December 17, 2010 at 12:48:38
Specs: Windows 7
I use a software that sets proxy address. Now while I chat on and messenger, would they know my hidden IP using "netstat -n " command on DOS ?

Whenever I see a question like this I have to wonder what you are doing that you worry about being traced.

Trust me on this ok.....if someone like say, the police, want to trace you, they can quite easily.

Hey Curt R,

Thanks for writing back.

Ha Ha. :D No. Not cops. LoL. Its because My friends.
The reason I wanted to know about it is that I'm on chat rooms and I don't want everyone to know my location.(The reaction which people show is different for people of different countries from what I've observed.) So I thought it would be unnecessary for them to know about me. The website masks the IP.. But, When I add them on some other, say yahoo messenger or Skype, could they possibly know where I'm from? I mean I'm just asking whether they could find it out with the simple netstat command or some other tracer software? :) Another reason for me to post this question is that It would be helpful for me to find out about them too. Right? My friend claims to be a French in the chat room. But I know I could find it out by sending a mail to that person through 'gmail' account(gmail masks my ip. :P) to the person's hotmail account. When the person replied I gotta know that the person is from Sweden but later more emails from that person, I found out that the person is from another place, the place which I'm very much familiar with(Guess that person forgot to use proxy for later emails). So, Its just fun to check if the person is faking or not. :) Well, at least for beginners like me its fun. :) ;)
Hoping another reply from you Curt R.

If you want to hide your location try looking into a online proxy server. Once you're connected to it, it would mask your location. I repeat, if it's law enforcement that's after you, they contact the proxy service people and ISP's involved and they can, and will find you.

If you're just trying to hide from other people in chatrooms then this should suffice to keep your location hidden.

Oh and just for the record, I don't buy your into your story about people caring where you're from. I was chatting online in the IRC's almost 15 years ago and I know better.

I've met your kind before....you're nothing new. Every chatter I met like you, who wants to know all about others but prevent them from knowing about him is an online stalker.

You need to get off the computer, get out of the house and start a real life. Oh, some counselling wouldn't hurt.

Thanks (not for the nonsense part).

Man, you had enough time to read my story!! lmao. Oh, well that's your job, read and analyze stories. I thought only I was jobless.
15 years ago? Ha Ha. If you want to know better about younger generation, IRC's are still open for people like you. You were wrong, we are new to you. So, I wouldn't say much. Just try it and know us better.

Oh, Now I get why you didn't believe about caring. You never were able to find it. It seems like you have had counseling before. I don't know, but if you try the NEW ones, you could really get better.
Get well soon.

Man, you had enough time to read my story!!

Story....LOL....I can tell you don't read much. It took me about 3 seconds to read your last post.

Oh, well that's your job, read and analyze stories.

Actually, this is not my job. I help out in here because I enjoy helping people and I have a wide knowledge of computers and computing in general. As for reading/analyzing your story that didn't take much doing. As a rule of thumb, if it looks like BS and smells like BS, chances are it is BS.

I thought only I was jobless

Oh I have a job, a very high paying one as a matter of fact. But then, I'm not a lazy or afraid to get out and find work and I have actual skills that people are willing to pay for.

If you want to know better about younger generation,

I have a 21 year old son. He worked very hard in school and graduated half a year early. At the age of 17 he quit the part time job he'd had for years and moved out and got a real job and has been living on his own ever since. Unlike most of the kids his age, he knows he's not entitled to anything and will in fact have to work for it.

I never gave him anything other than food, clothing, shelter, morals, ethics and a willingness to get out there and work for what he wants in life. I feel very confident these are all concepts you know nothing about and have no interest in. I'd wager you'll be 30 and still living in mommy and daddy's house with mom cooking, cleaning, and doing your laundry and dad paying for everything because you're too busy chatting.

Kid, I was online when the chat software you use was developed. I tried it before you ever heard of it. That goes for msn chat, yahoo and all the others. But you see, I have, and always have had, a life. So my chatting was limited to when I wasn't busy working, hunting, fishing, travelling, camping, raising my son and enjoying life. It wasn't my life.

Oh, Now I get why you didn't believe about caring. You never were able to find it.

I'm not exactly sure what this is supposed to mean. Your lousy grammer and sentence structure tells me you're barely literate and likely would be completely illiterate if it wasn't for chatting and texting.

I hung out online with actual adults who realize where you live has nothing to do with who, and what, you are. Again, another concept that likely escapes you. But I'll explain it to you, slowly, and in small words.....

You are born where you're born and nobody can choose where there born. Until you grow up, get a job and move out, you have to live where your mommy and daddy live. A mature person (this means someone who's got brains in their head) understands this and won't care where you're from.

If you're hanging out with people who do care where you live, I would suggest you find some new friends. The ones you have aren't worth having.

It seems like you have had counseling before. I don't know, but if you try the NEW ones, you could really get better.
Get well soon.

LOL

Nice try kid.

Before I read that last sentence I thought I was dealing with someone say, 16 to 24 years of age. I now realize you're no older than 12 and everything came together and makes sense.

One fine day little boy, you may even attain maturity...........If you're lucky.

You've had 5 whole minutes of my time (yes, I not only read fast, but type fast too!) and that's all your going to get. I wouldn't bother replying to this since I won't be returning and anything you do say will likely only make us grown-ups laugh.
