  1. Informative blog useful for those who are looking for some other command to trace the location of any ip address ..I usually trace the location of an ip address through sites like Ip-Details.com they are rendering ip search tool which will display details like ip location ,ISP address ,country and so on but i can't trace exact home address of any person from ip address ..I can trace only ISP details from ip address ..
