No.  Even if you used that number to look up his provider's domain, you wouldn't know what username the person goes by.  About the only thing you can send a person without them knowing it would be a "cookie" (which is very limited in the content you can store there).

ummm... I think that is the whole point of not being able to send files via the IP address and cookies... It is called security.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

let's be careful here.  The answer would be NO if the user had his client correctly configured.  However, if he was running any type of web-server then the answer may be yes.  

Now there are some web-servers that are not quite obviuosly that!

Basically, the IP-stack itself does not have the ability to up-load, down-load or do anything else.  Typically you connet a web-browser to that and these are also limited in what they allow.  However, if you run some type of web-server, then ftp access may be permitted.  

The thing is that there are some products such as back-orifice that attach themselves to the TCP stack and do allow such commands as file up-load and down-load and do not show them selves to the user.

Bottom line is:  If you just have you TCP-stack and a browser then the files can not be sent as you wonder.  If there is something else attaching itself to that stack then who know.  

There is one more rinkle to this.  It is conceivable that you may down-load a plug-in that would be attached bvia the browser to the TCP port and that this would allow the access you (dont) want.

Are you trying to do this or avoid this happening to you?
