How can I find a person if I've only got their I.P. address.  Please don't tell me to ask the server.  Is there any other way?

Send a message to the postmaster at the I.P. address.
-
Postmaster@I.P.address

There is no way that you can get the specific address automatically without hacking the server.

You could however try guessing. A common address would be firstinitiallastname@I.P.adress
as in aburr@aol.com

You mention hacking the server, any tips on doing this,  If you get really bored feel free to prove your stuff and do it for me!  I'm looking specifically for 204.186.3.120 and I know the domain is ptd.net but now what?  
Your name, Aburr, is this a reference to the man that killed Hamilton in a duel and is there any political motivation?  or is that just your name?
Happy computing.
