    If you have the IP address, and need to find out who is the registered owner of the address, try
    Query the APNIC Who is Database, you cannot do anything with an IP address. All you can do is find the basic geographical location and the ISP details of the IP address through any IP lookup sites like IP-Details.com.

    This topic, although old, but quite relevant, so I want to share my knowledge and hear additions. The new method finds the target computer in three stages. In the first stage, the time required to pass a data packet to the target is measured and converted to a distance-a common technique in geolocation-it narrows the possible location of the target to an area of about 200 km. Then packets are sent to known reference servers (with Google Maps) located in this area to determine which routes they are on. When the host and the target host are behind one router, researchers can compare how much the packet passes from the router to each of the hosts; this time difference, transformed into an approximate difference in distance, narrows the search area even further. Finally, they search this search for reference on a more detailed level: once again comparing time delays, they determine which of the reference servers is closest to the target . Of course, the result can not be perfectly accurate, but it's much better than trying to determine the place by simply recalculating the delay from the first stage into the distance; and better than the best of the existing methods based on the IP address. On average, their method gives a spread of 690 meters, and in the best reaches 100 meters - enough to locate the target computer within a few streets.

    I have an email and found a related ip adress 73.2019.09.15.13.28.44 At least this was one of the nmbs in the email header.so I tried tracing it and s totally different ip nmb shows up in the results but it appears to be in the very near geolocation location as I would have most suspected. What would this mean?
