IP (Internet Protocol) Address is one of the most important components or part of the internet, as well as cyber forensics. With the help of IP address all digital devices, computers communicate with each other, and this is allotted to that device, such as static or dynamic. That all the reasons law enforcement agencies are using IP address to trace Cyber Criminal.

This tutorial helps to get IP address with time and referrer of URL. Instead, there are many online websites, through you can get the IP address of any person by sending a link, But I recommend you to create your own IP grabber PHP Script.

Prerequisites:

  • PHP Script of IP Grab
  • Web hosting Sites

PHP Script of IP Grab
PHP is programming language which was established as create websites, PHP has some good programming code so you can easily get the IP address, Timing, Referrer, User Agent (Details of browser and operating system). Before the bind off all code here is the short and basic description of all code. So you can understand that how is it work.

Get IP Address
$_SERVER[“REMOTE_ADDR”]
This code is used for getting remotely IP address of the victim. Basically, its grab the server IP which victim is using that time.

Get User Agent
$_SERVER[‘HTTP_USER_AG
ENT’]
User Agent is acting on behalf of the user to the browser and other requests and responses. Web Browser telling a website information all about the operating system and browser.

Referrer Page
$_SERVER[“HTTP_REFERER”]
This script of code is used to get referrer of your link. For example, you send IP Grab script through facebook chat, then in a referrer, you can see facebook URL. This will help you for getting IP address of two or more victims.

Get Time
$n = time();
$t = gmstrftime(“%a, %d %b %Y %H:%M:%S GMT”, $n );
This script of code is used to get time of click on that URL which you send to victim.

Now create a combine file so you can easily grab victim’s IP Address so just open notepad on your computer and copy paste below script.

<?php
$f=fopen(“ip.txt”,’a’);
$n = time();
$t = gmstrftime(“%a, %d %b %Y %H:%M:%S GMT”, $n );
fwrite($f,”IP=”.$_SERVER[“REMOTE_ADDR”].”\n”);
fwrite($f,”user agent=”.$_SERVER[‘HTTP_USER_AGENT’].”\n”);
fwrite($f,”Referer Page=”.$_SERVER[“HTTP_REFERER”].”\n”);
fwrite($f,”TIME=”.$t.”\n\n\n\n”);
fclose($f);
?>

Now save this notepad file with the name of ipgrab.php (.php is the must).
