A good IP searching tool?

I used this and a few others.

Use the "Whois" search buttons from each of the linked sites above to determine which ISP operates the IP address you're researching. Each IP listing, or search result, is supposed to have contact names for the ISP, e-mail addresses and sometimes phone numbers. You'll also find that important abuse notification contact for where to report SPAM and other nefarious Internet activities. However, to use these five services, you first need to know from which part of the world the IP address is registered. Pick the wrong one, however, and it is supposed to tell you if it belongs to one of the other four organizations.
However, the easiest way I have found to track down IP addresses is to use the free SpamCOP.net services. There, you post the header information from e-mail, and they tell you from where it came.

If it's an overseas registration, it will tell you where to go to get more details.

If you have access to a Linux, or other Unix type, box you can use either "dig -x" or "host", both followed by the IP, to do reverse lookups to determine domain name. If you want to know who owns the IP you can use "whois -a" followed by the IP.
