How to Find Location Of Yahoo Messenger Chat Friend

It might be very rare to find an Internet user who don't use online messenger services like Google Hangouts, Yahoo Messenger, WhatsApp etc. These tools help us to maintain our relationships even in our busy life style. These Internet Messengers are safe and useful as long as you limit your friendship with known people. However, it is not possible always. So what can we do to make sure the online chat contacts are not lying ? First step is to make sure they are telling the exact location from where they are chatting. How can we find the location of a messenger friend ? It is possible but not very simple because chat tools like Yahoo Messenger or WhatsApp are providing IP address (layer 3 address) of the server not the individual chat contacts. However, we can find the layer 3 address of a chat contact if we try hard. This tutorial gives an outline to trace the actual location of a messenger contact.

Procedure to Find IP Address Of a Chat Contact

The step by step instructions provided below will help you to reveal the actual physical location of your online friend.
  1. Start TCP/IP Connection

    To find the IP address of your chat friend, create a TCP/IP connection between your computer and his computer. Actually you can start this connection very simply. Invite him to share a file in the middle of chatting with him. If he accepts the file sharing and starts sharing files, automatically a TCP/IP connection starts. This make your computers in peer to peer mode irrespective of the chat tools you use. You can try the same step for Yahoo Messenger, Gtalk and WhatsApp.

  2. Command Prompt Trick

    Open command prompt and type netstat -n command and press enter. Now the list of addresses to which your computer has active TCP/IP connections will appear.

    I recommend you to perform the same task before establishing the peer to peer connection with your chat friend and note the IP addresses at that time. It will help you to easily identify the new address. Another DOS command which can do the same task is:

    netstat -a

    It is important to note that while you process the netstat command, there must be an active connection between your computer and his computer. If there is no such connection at that time, you will get only the Yahoo chat server address instead of his IP address.
