Open up terminal, type in "netstat -n", it displays active connections and the respective IP's of the other end. Now, send a file to someone on your contact list, type in "netstat -n" while it's transferring the file and check the new connection. That's the connection to the person using MSN. There, you have the IP :P

Cross-reference the outputs of the command, it's the one that wasn't listed before. It might be port 1863, but that's not always the case -- try plain "netstat" to see if that helps.
