hi there,

i am a regular in a forum that uses vBulletin Version 3.5.0. (quite smiliar to this forum).

I have 2 accounts in that forum to alternate.

Someone managed to find out what ip address i'm connecting from and i search through the entire forum and couldn't it myself. Can someone please guide me how it is been done?

I don't want my ip addres so be "discovered" so easily. how do i mask my ip address in forums?

My suspect is that this person could be running some hostipfox-0.3.1.xpi on firefox browser.

Please help.

thanks

any staff member can see ip addresses.

as far as telling you how to mask it, that's a no go here at our forum.

you might try asking google, since google will be more than happy to tell you all about anything illegal, imoral, or otherwise unethical.

also, please only start one thread per subject.

but i don't think the user who message me is an administrator, we know who they admins are. could he be running some software to check out my ip address?

because he said " i did an Ip check and it shows xxx and yyy username"



so did he use the ip address to trace which username are tied to this ip, or he use the username to trace which ip address?
