MySpace IP Tracking

My search turned up nothing about this on TFP, so here goes.

A couple dozen of us TFPers are fooling around with MySpace and adding each other as friends, blah blah blah. Nothing serious at all, and certainly nothing to replace TFP. Some of us go months without even logging on. However, there is one particular MySpace "entity" who I thought was a TFPer but now I'm starting to wonder based on the nature of some of her comments and messages. They just don't match up with the TFPer of that same name. It's not any abuse or stalking or anything like that - it's just uncharacteristic comments.

Therefore, how can I track someone's IP address from MySpace? I know what city this person is supposed to be in, so that's all I needed to check. I don't want a street address - just an IP. I've seen several online forums that debated whether or not this was even possible, but that's not my question. I don't want to know IF it's possible, I want to know HOW to do it if it's possible.

Again, it's no biggie, but if anybody knows how, I'd like to try it.

I know that there was a rash of people claiming to be able to do what you want to do, but they were mostly just spammers. I think it has been done, but every time it has the folks at myspace made changes and it ended up not working for very long.

Did you ask the TFPer in question if it really is them?

afaik, there's no way to track the IP addresses. You can set up a tracker to see who visits your profile but the ones I've seen aren't complex enough to track IP's.

The IPLocation for my IP address is Lewellen, Nebraska. I'm nowhere near there, I can assure you of that.

Even if you got their IP, there's a high liklihood that it wouldn't show up. Location of IP ranges is entirely optional, and usually up to the ISP.

Furthermore, tracking a visiting IP via mySpace's limited script support would be rather difficult. You're better off doing some low-tech snooping. Send 'em a TFP message, and ask them to read it when you see them on mySpace.

Are you sure this isn't just a case of someone acting differently on two different websites?

I've done this before, you just need to hotlink an image stored on a server you have access to logs on.
