    I need a good IP trace program or site. Obviously so I can enter some IPs and figure out what city they're from. Hopefully free if there is a good one, otherwise a cheap one.

    Also, why do some IPs that you trace do to a different city than there address? Any way around that, I need to figure out the city that the IP is from.... Anyway?

    That depends, do you have the ability to issue a subpoena or court order? If not, you have to rely on ARIN and WHOIS data those programs pull and that's a crap shoot.

    Why do people waste their time? I mean, do you really think anything will come of it?

    It's not for searching down a person, it's for verifying information they provide.

    The only two sources of info you will have (that all these others user) are WHOIS for domain names and ARIN for IP addresses. Another option is to do a tracert and resolve all the IPs to their DNS names (if they have them) to try to track it back. In reality the closest you are going to be able to get is to a CO or network entry point for the ISP im most cases.
