IP address are a mystery sometimes
Posted on 2012-09-11
Yes, I know that an external IP address will not lead one directly to a house address and that is a good thing. However, I am working a case right now that involves two different IP addresses. One traces to an AT&T building in downtown Austin, TX and the user at the other end is only a few miles away. The other IP address comes back to Cingular Mobile for another user in Austin, TX. That IP address comes back to a corn field near Wichita, KS. Google street view shows a long, dusty, dirt road running towards an old wooden farmhouse, Just what one would expect to see in Kansas. What is up with that?
Can anyone recommend a publication that details IP address primer, book of secrets, tips, any further knowledge?
