How to Get a Player's IP Over Xbox Live

How to Get a Player's IP Address Over Xbox Live
Using Cain and Abel

Download, install, configure

Download Cain and Abel here: http://www.oxid.it/cain.html

*Note that if you virus scan it, it will appear as a virus (this is because it contains software that is virus-like/related - after all, it is a hacking tool). Don't worry, its a trusted tool, and virus free. This means you may have to turn off antiviruses on oyur computer.

Simply download the latest version, that is NOT marked as "discontinued" or "no longer supported". For me, its called "Download Cain & Abel v4.9.36 for Windows NT/2000/XP". It should be a light blue link.

When installing, just click next to all the options, and remember to install the WinPCap driver.

After you are done downloading and installing, open up the program as an administrator (right click > Run as Administrator). 

You will be taken to the main interface page.

At the top of the program in the navigation bar, click on the tab labeled "Configure".

After that, a popup box will appear titled "Configuration Dialog". There may be a few devices on your network, but they should have IP addresses of

Click on the device name that actually has a real IP address (an IP other than After you are done with that, make sure to check "Don't use promiscuous mode" at the bottom of the box.
Finally, click "Apply", then "Ok".

Once you have done that, you must click the Sniffer tab. Its located near the top of the page, next to other tabs (labeled Decoders, Network, Cracker, Traceroute etc.). Click the "Sniffer" tab (which is indicated with an icon and labeled "Sniffer").

Now you have to click anywhere in the white box. Then the blue plus-sign (+) will become highlighted, its between the Sniffer tab and the top navigation bar (between the Sniffer tab and the Configure/Tools tabs).

Click the blue plus sign button.

Next, a popup box will appear titled "MAC Address Scanner".
Simply click "OK".

A box will appear saying "Sniffer must be activated first!"
Just click the Sniffer, located on the left side of the biohazard symbol, or on the right side of the file symbol (the biohazard symbol is directly below the "File" tab).

Redo this process, with clicking in the white space, the blue plus, then scanning the MAC address.

It will now scan for devices, when it is done, take note of the one that says "Microsoft Corporation", as its your Xbox 360.

Next, click on the APR tab at the bottom of the page.

Now, click on the top box, not the bottom, and click on the blue plus again. The sniffer should be on, as well. Most people prefer to always keep theirs on. If its ever not on, simply turn it on.

Now, here's the most important part. You have to click on your router IP, on the left side, then IPs will pop up on the right side of the box. You now want to click the IP that is your xbox, on the right side. It is the one that corresponds with the IP you wrote down, or just memorized, before, in this tutorial.

Your router IP is going to be the shorter one, as you see in the picture.
**NOTE: You will have a MAC address for your router.

After you have clicked your router IP, then your Xbox IP, just click "OK".

You are now ready to get player IPs.

Get the IPs

You can now easily and successfully get the IP of anyone who plays with you (in-game, in party chat, private chat, etc.).

All you have to do now, is every time you want to see players' IPs, just click the biochemical symbol, or the "Start/Stop APR" symbol. The players' IPs will appear in the bottom white box (sniffer has to be on before you start the APR, though).

The IPs of the actual players will be the IP's on the far right column, not the one where almost all the IP's are the same.

What to do with the IPs

You could trace their IP if you wanted to, in order to find the general location in which they lived. Or, if you have access to more advanced, government technology, you could potentially find out exactly where they live. 

You can use their IP to load hacks (such as viruses, malware, spyware, etc.) against their computers.

You could DoS/DDoS their IP (which is the most common solution). This will remove them from the game (or cause them extreme lag). That will guarantee you the win.
