How to see someone else's IP address on xbox Live

This discussion thread has 10 messages.

So i play nhl 2k7 on xbox 360, and frequently switch gamertag accounts. However, some opponents know that it's me because they see a different gamertag coming from the "same IP address". How do you see the IP addresses of other gamers on xbox live?

I don't think you can just get someone's IP info.

just curious though, why do you need to change gamertag all the time? ;)

it's just that sometimes i play on one account, and my brother plays on his account...different gamertags, same xbox 360
#4
and yes, it is possible because i have personally seen other gamers identify the other gamertags on my 360 and there was NO possible way they knew that the gamertags were coming from the same console...i didn't tell them, my brother didn't tell them...

dont people do that using comm view and Zone Alarm? I know thats how they boot people in halo 2 so maybe it works the same for seeing who there playing on that game too.

Are you connected to a wireless router, with a computer with lowjack?

yep Zone Alarm and commview works like a charm if your trying to track peoples ip addresses over xbox live

well im pretty sure if you monitor connections going to your computer i know that people bridge and the link halo 2 too boot and lag you out. Now if im correct your 360 should be getting the net through your computer.

That way a firewall such as Zone Alarm will be accepting/denying packets and connections

Live uses UDP port 3074 and 88 i think. So i would look for the connections on those ports. Obviously if you know your own IP you can filter that out. So if a connection is made to you while your gaming someone over live and the source is your connection on port 3074/88 i would assume the Ip making that request is theirs?

It may also be possible if your router supports it to monitor connections. On my netgear one it is if i tell it to log all connections i just scroll through the log and see what IP addresses have made connections on those ports. Use a simple port scanner to scan the ip address and see the host name. That usually will give you a rough idea what ISP they are. For example on WWE i scanned an IP dream train internet ISP. Gamer card says their from Japan? Bingo!

Using commview i find it very tedious but i know it works its been ages since i used it though so my help wouldn't be useful on that probably. But if you tell it to start capturing the traffic while playing games and filter all the info to those ports or something? That might do it, but its been about two years since i used that program so :p
