I have found a number of IP addresses in one of my logs for an application that is internet based. It shows the history of who logged in with a time and the IP address being used asfollows
Sunday June 22nd 2008 at       02:57:27 AM PDT     99.138.41.121
Saturday June 21st 2008 at       06:24:14 AM PDT     99.138.41.121
Friday June 20th 2008 at       07:29:07 PM PDT     69.198.51.98
Friday June 20th 2008 at       06:56:53 PM PDT     69.198.51.98
Friday June 20th 2008 at       05:30:12 PM PDT     69.198.51.98
Friday June 20th 2008 at       03:46:31 PM PDT     98.195.187.2
Friday June 20th 2008 at       03:41:03 PM PDT     69.198.51.98
Friday June 20th 2008 at       08:31:28 AM PDT     69.198.51.98 ( 1 fail attempts )
Wednesday June 18th 2008 at       07:09:06 AM PDT     65.38.102.125
