do a whois and find out basicly all teir is to find out on that ip, you could use it to locate and connect to that user, finding someones ip is like the base to hacking them.

u can h4x tehm.


Knowing their IP address won't help you very much, however it is needed to go anywhere. Also, if you're asking this question then anything that could be done to actually hack them is too advanced for you. Keep learning.

easiest way is to use telnet and just pick the port you want to connect to.

but that will be a waste of time unless they have a remote login system you know the password to. which is unlikely.

Hi,

If you imagine hacking someone is the same as burgulary (from a metaphorical pov not an ethical one..), knowing someone's IP is the same as knowing the address of the house you want to rob.

Your IP is unique on the internet, it is the address of your computer.

Continuing the metaphor ....

You dont just walk to that address and stroll through a wall, pop up through the floor or drop in through the roof, there are openings that allow you entry i.e. Doors, Windows

The same with IP addresses, you dont connect to just that IP, you connect to a certain port, i.e When you are reading this you are connected to port 80, if you use telnet you are connected to port 23, querying DNS will connect to port 53, 25 SMTP (Mail), 110 POP (Mail) etc etc

To connect to a specific port on an IP address,

type : telnet IP port
.... i.e. telnet mx1.hotmail.com 25

(You also get to see a warning for spammers). This can be used to find information about what the computers OS is or what programs are running.

Port numbers and the programs associated with them are not set in stone, programs/daemons can be run on any port, however they are not generally moved unless there is a reason.

The port numbers are divided into three ranges: the Well Known Ports,
the Registered Ports, and the Dynamic and/or Private Ports.

The Well Known Ports are those from 0 through 1023.

DCCP Well Known ports SHOULD NOT be used without IANA registration.
The registration procedure is defined in [RFC4340], Section 19.9.

The Registered Ports are those from 1024 through 49151

DCCP Registered ports SHOULD NOT be used without IANA registration.
The registration procedure is defined in [RFC4340], Section 19.9.

The Dynamic and/or Private Ports are those from 49152 through 65535


Full list of port numbers : http://www.iana.org/assignments/port-numbers

Apart from a Whois lookup, you can find out what type of OS is being used and what services are being run by the computer. If any services are running, you can find out if they are vulnerable by doing some background research. If the service(s) is vulnerable... Wink

It would depend which ports are open, if any. There are different ways to connect to the computer or the services it is running depending on those ports. You can always test them out with Telnet or NetCat, but watch out for honeypots.

This is a very basic way of explaining IP addresses and port numbers, but not entirely acurate. In the case of the metaphor, if any opening is available and can be exploited from outside of the house, the attacker can gain full access to the house. In the case of computers, not all ports will allow an attacker to gain root access to the server. For example, if a server is running MSN Messenger and the user is in the middle of a file transfer port 1863 will be open, but the attacker can not simply use Telnet to remotely connect to the server and gain root access from it.

You can do quite a bit- but also quite little with an IP. It IS like the house number, but you can do so much an IP in the ways of personal info. Street names, family names, email addresses, home address, credit reports, nearly anything in that ways. Other wise, its kind of just a number.
