Skype: Locate your Chat Partner
by Rudolf Faix Wednesday, March 25, 2015 2:48 AM

A Skype resolver is a program used to find out the IP address of any Skype user.

If someone likes to make business with you or is causing you trouble, you might want to know their IP address. A Skype resolver can help you find out the IP address of the person. It works only as long as the user is logged in at Skype.

First step is to go to the user’s profile. Copy their profile name.

Then you paste the Skype User ID into the Skype resolver.

After you have gotten the IP address of your chat partner you can verify his location by using an IP location finder service.

Remember: There are even possibilities to hide the IP address by using proxy services,
Someone, which likes to hide himself in the anonymity of the Internet, has a reason for it. Don't make business with such people. The risk to get scammed is in this case 100%.
Don't make business with someone, where the IP location is not matching the location in his profile!

 

How it works:

Skype calls are peer to peer. As much as possible is done without the need for a centralized server through different types of nodes (clients). There are three types of nodes in the Skype network.

Supernodes

Regular nodes

Login server

Any client within the network can become a supernode. Supernodes have a cache of IP-addresses to all other supernodes. If you are behind NAT supernodes will help you UDP hole punch. UDP hole punching is using a third party to connect to another client circumventing the issue of connection directly to someone behind NAT.

Thus, you are connecting directly to the client when issuing a friend request or getting the cached IP of the username.
