a trick you may try: just enable file transfer during the chatting procedure, regardless if your buddy agree to receiving the file or not, a connection is going to be established for the file transfer, so you may use NETSTAT -A to check the buddy's ip address.

as i mentioned above, it is possible to find the buddy's ip address if you invoke file transfer during the conversation even the connection is denied finally.

> or can it be determined after chattin by savin the message index .....if so how ??

what do you mean about the "message index"? personally, and commonly, you can not determine the ip address after the conversation except that your IM client supports detailed log on this.

hi TheLearnedOne, i think i have given the answer. you know, file transfer is TCP based, connection oriented, you certainly can use NETSTAT command to learn which IP you are connecting during the session of file transfer. regards, bbao
