ip address(es) of current connection?

Using Chrome on W10.  How can I see the ip address of the currently displayed page in Chrome?  Note: I'm not looking for a DNS translation -- I believe that can give me one of multiple ip addresses depending upon which DNS server is used (e.g. if a change is still replicating across DNS servers; or if I have a Hosts file).  So Chrome extensions like the one I just tried from TCPIPUTILS.com seem to just do a DNS lookup.

Am also interested in seeing the ip addresses associated with the elements on a page

TCPView from Sysinternals shows all TCP & UDP endpoints, but trying to figure out which are associated with the page I'm browsing --- I'm not seeing how to do that.

You need Wire Shark or Comm View to do this. I use Comm View and it can show me the IP addresses of all my connections.

Thanks John - will Comm View do what I'm asking, or will it just show me a list of ip addresses associated with chrome.exe?

Thanks for going to the trouble.  Wish it was more granular -- I suspect I need something that's designed for Chrome

Wire Shark and Comm View are general purpose packet sniffers so they are not particular to one browser.

You can click on a packet above and go as deep as you wish. The screen above is the simple opening screen.

Thanks - I'm looking for a tool that will show me the tcp sessions specific to the web page I am browsing.  I think packet sniffers don't do that?

nslookup hostname.com

will give all ip addresses associated with that hostname

Well I'm pretty sure John has provided a very succinct reply.

If you cant make it work, I'm not sure you have anywhere else to go.

one other thing you might want to try is fiddler

Fiddler is a Proxy server that sits between your browser and the rest of the world.

it performs the same functions as developer tools but is on steroids.

Thanks - but I think that does a DNS lookup instead of telling me what ip address(es) the current page is actually connected

Maybe I'm missing something then.  Here's from my original post:

How can I see the ip address of the currently displayed page in Chrome?

Maybe you can tell me the steps to get my answer?

btw I'm using Fiddler2 - it's the closest tool I've found so far, but no link between page and ip address(es)

The addresses will never be different to the response at that moment though. Why do you need to know the connection ip?
if you say nslookup www.google.com

you can be assured that google.com is not going to get served (to your computer) by an IP address outside the reply.

Different parts of the world canhave different replies at the same instant, this can vary from region to region, country to country.

Comm View matches the packets with the application name (say Chrome) that generates the packets. Then you can display the packets. So it does very much what you are looking for.

Try a trial license (good for about 3 weeks).

Also try Wire Shark.

You need to go and look and try because there is more you can imagine at your fingertips.

Thanks John - but it sounds like Comm View doesn't give me any more than TCPView does - if I've got 15 Chrome tabs and 5 Chrome windows open...

Am I missing something?  Per my question above: it sounds like you're confirming that it shows a list of ip addresses for chrome.exe instead of doing what I'm asking:
Thanks John - will Comm View do what I'm asking, or will it just show me a list of ip addresses associated with chrome.exe?

I'm feeling like we've got a disconnect here - please let me know if you don't understand what I'm looking for.

What you are missing (I think) is the filtering you can do to show just IE, Mail or Chrome or whatever you desire.

Using Chrome on W10.  How can I see the IP address of the currently displayed page in Chrome?

I assume you mean "what IP addresses are going back and forth from the web page to the Internet" then both Wire Share and Comm View will do that.

If I have misinterpreted the above then please clarify.

I may be wrong, but my suspicion is that you're saying Wire Shark and Comm View correlate tcp sessions to Chrome browser tabs; my belief is that it only correlates tcp sessions with executables (and pids/ports), but I don't see a way to correlate any of that with a specific browser tab.  And then there's other Chrome tcp sessions not associated with tabs, e.g. Chrome checking for updates, or doing whatever else Chrome is communicating...

Let's say you have 2 Chrome windows open; each window has 2 tabs open (i.e. total 4 urls).  2 tabs have msn.com open, the other 2 let's say yahoo.com.

Can you post a Comm View screen shot showing me the ip connections for one of the tabs that has msn.com open?

JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Packet sniffers will relate the traffic to the application. So no, they will not relate traffic to a specific tab. I did not interpret Tab from your first post. Nothing I know does that.

SAbboushiAuthor Commented:
k thanks.  Sorry if I wasn't clear.

Does each browser Tab uses a different port?  If so, any idea how to identify the port being used for a specific browser tab?
0
 
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
No. Each browser tab does not use a different port. It is all one browser going out through the same connection .

So I show you how to see the remote ip in developer tools and stiff me on points?

That was what you wanted after all, I'm happy to share with John however I will contest it if you do not redistribute

Sorry - don't know what you mean?

>>if you say nslookup www.google.com, you can be assured that google.com is not going to get served (to your computer) by an IP address outside the reply.

As I pointed out in my original post, I want a solution that is aware of Hosts file.  I believe that nslookup does not use the standard windows libraries and therefore ignores the Hosts file, so I have to disagree with you: a Hosts file can definitely result in an ip address being served outside the reply of nslookup


>>Different parts of the world can have different replies at the same instant, this can vary from region to region, country to country.

Different replies, meaning different ip addresses (e.g. load balancing)?


>> So I show you how to see the remote ip in developer tools and stiff me on points?

Sorry - my oversite.  I somehow missed your responses - glad you pointed them out.  Might have been more pleasant though if you'd asked "Did you see my post"... ; )


>> That was what you wanted after all

Holy Crap Batman!  That looks like exactly what I asked for!  Shows the actual ip served even when Hosts file is used!


>>  I'm happy to share with John however I will contest it if you do not redistribute

Would appreciate if you would clarify your posts (my Qs above)  and then I'll look into redistributing points.

So if it exactly what you asked for as per your question then allocate all the points to that, post ill be happy to answer your questions in EE chat, not on this thread because it is getting off topic

As for your reply avoid 'did you see my post' it's not as if it was hidden from your view was it now. It was more ignored
