    Just having your IP address is not really need for alarm.

    Big woop.

    Theres tons of ways to get someones ip address.

    More reason for alarm would be does this individual have the know how, and the right circumstances on your part to compromise your system.

    If you met someone on a chat, thats one thing.

    Let them talk their game.

    Keep your firewall up to date, Anti virus, and spyware as well, use common sense when downloading -- and stay away from the free porn and warez sites.

    Unless you are on this persons server or accepting emails and opening them frivolously then youll be contribute to his Ability to do something to you.

    Most people on the internet talk a big game, bu very few actually could do what most say they can.

    No its not that much possible

    Its possible to find the country and IP provider and finding out the address is not a easy process.

    its like searching a pin in a sea

    Some internet connection provider provide variable IP address

    Billions of computer were connected to internet and intra net,each has its unique IP address

    these are IP tracer

    another domain tracer

    No, they cannot get your address. All they could find out, is your internet service provider. For someone to get your address, they would have to get a warrent from a DA's office. Only people who can do that is the police, or fbi, or if you are wanted for some serious crime..
