Why? Who? How are you in contact with them?

Ask them nicely and they may tell you.

The easiest way I can think of (aside from asking them) is to install a firewall (eg, Kerio Personal Firewall) on your computer, and initiate a file transfer from you to them via an instant messaging software (such as MSN Messenger), and the alert will tell you that an inbound or outbound connection to their IP address (along with a port) wants to occur.

You know that IP address do change.

netstat after initiating a direct connection.

I'd be interested to hear your motives for needing this tho ;-)
