is it possible to trace a hacker by the number example 24 203 3 56 ??

I assume you mean the IP address, with "." replaced with " ". There is a reverse ARP request which might give you the host's domain name. But if it's a clever cracker, it will have faked the IP address, just as they would fake the hostname. ]:)

Try Neowrox.com's Neo Trace Express, using it, I know that PressF1 is hosted in the "NorthShore" it comes up with, my hotmail is hosted in US somewhere etc... Very useful!

If it's in NZ it will *always* show Northshore.

PressF1 hosted in the NorthShore! Bah, humbug. Since when are our offices at 246 Queen St, the "North Shore". :D

From here, it's "off the North shore" (off the north shore, across a bit of water, then about 400 miles further north).

It's just what happens with locations that are based in NZ.

I tried doing a trace to my own IP (assigned by ISP) and it came up with an arrow leaving CHCH with a '?' at the end.

When I tried doing a trace to the webserver at my college. It came up with Northshore. Which is completely wrong when it is located on Columbo and Gloucester. ;)

address info is not always correct. it very easy to put in fake info. eg you can make pressf1 look like it comes from the US if you wanted to. basic info of the main servers is proberly accurate to a certain degree but final loction is near on impossable to pinpoint unless some is kind enough to actually specify where they live (yea right! lol).

best bet is to track down ip number and isp they are going through and hope its not a fake addy.
