Thread: Telnet

  1. #1
    i've been mucking about with telnet this morning, checking email and sending email and such

    i used an ip given out on another site i found on google. don't know if i'm allowed to post it, i'll post it anyway, and if it's inappropriate, can a mod remove it...thanks

    192.168.1.1 25

    now, i was using this ip happily enough to send anonymous emails (just to test, not doing anything naughty)

    however, a friend of mine (board member, TClite) tried to use this same ip but couldn't connect

    the only major difference between our situations is that he's on BT and i'm on freeserve

    he tried turning off zone alarm, but still couldn't connect

    does anyone know why this ip would not be able to be used on a bt line?

    thanks in advance for any replies

    p.s. we both have windows xp (i have home, he has pro)

    192.168.x.x looks like a private or internal ip address. he cant connect to that. Its not the one that connects you to the net. Its assigned to you on your network.

    192.168.1.1 25 is a local network adress. i bet none of your emails will have arrived.

    Did you have the person recieving the email check the source info?

    If it&#39;s anything like my ISP they add headers to it anyway so that it&#39;s not really annonymous.

    Anything I send from my SMTP server without using a registered domain will come out like (computer name)@prod.shaw.ca (the ISP&#39;s internal SMTP name) so while it seems to be annonymous and your IP may not be included, your computer name could be tracked back through the DNS servers if they wanted to.

    That IP you posted is reserved to IANA.

    If you have a private isp email and outlook or outlook express you&#39;ll maybe get a bit more info on the source.
    The way you&#39;re doing it is fine for web based email but I suspect that an ISP based email would either not accept it or would backtrace it the best they could.

    i&#39;m not doing it to be malicious...

    i&#39;m just curious to see if it works

    there&#39;s software out there for anonymous emails anyway...i&#39;m just wanting to see if it would work

    are you saying i should try and email my freeserve account using the anonymous email address?
    i&#39;ve not tried that yet, i&#39;ll see how it goes

    ok, i just sent myself an email to my freeserve address

    the reply to address is still anon@yahoo.com, however, one of the ip&#39;s given looks remarkable close to mine

    only the last segment is different

    what does this mean?

    i&#39;m not too good with ip&#39;s and stuff... :">
