Lately there is someone that just created a blog and he is insulting me. I think I know who the person is but I am not sure.
I would like to know the way to identify the ip of a computer so I can localize him.
Thanks a lot,
I'm sorry to hear about this and the short answer is "the IP isn't going to help much". Sorry.
An IP address is associated with a computer, not the user of the computer. So, the only IP address you can obtain is that associated with the server on which the blog lives (not the computer from which the block is updated).
For example, Let's say I'm publishing stuff about you on clanmills.com that you don't like:
511 /home/rmills> host clanmills.com
clanmills.com has address 184.108.40.206
512 /home/rmills> host 220.127.116.11
18.104.22.168.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer cl11.justhost.com.
So this tells you that clanmills.com has the IP address of 69..bla..bla which is actually cl11.josthost.com (correct - it is hosted by JustHost.com).
512 /home/rmills> whois clanmills.com
