using netstat -a it looks like:

damian@darkstar:~$ netstat -a
Active Internet connections (servers and established)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address           Foreign Address         State
tcp        0      0 *:x11                   *:*                     LISTEN

or do netstat -nap and you will get:

(Not all processes could be identified, non-owned process info
 will not be shown, you would have to be root to see it all.)

You can find a IP address of an AIM screen name on Windows or Linux.

IM the person and do a "direct connection" or "file transfer" in AIM. once connected with the user, you can just open command prompt and do netstat -n  (while connected) then close the IM and do netstat -n (again). Now you'll notice one of the connections that showed established with no some timed out. that is your friends IP.

thats 1 method.

There's a much better and faster way.

tcpdump -e

If you don't have it, urpmi or other tool to install it.

Then tcpdump -e -i eth0 | grep 6082 (or similar port)
