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?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
