I have a couple of questions ...

1. How do I find out the owner of a certain IP? or block of IPs?

2. Is there any way to find out where the IP is physically located? I'm assuming that knowing the owner of a certain IP block or IP could help, but there are companies that span multiple countries and own large class B addresses. I'm aware that one can find out the general location of some IPs by looking at their resolved host name ... but what about IPs that don't resolve?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
