Hi rohitdharan,

First of all, it is a vague question, if you give more context about your request i am sure you will have better answers.

You can use online tools to check the given ip address. Some tools like ipqualityscore will give you a score as if the ip is known to be an exit node for common vpn services or proxy. You will have a rating from 0% to 100%. You can find this tool here https://www.ipqualityscore.com/free-ip-lookup-proxy-vpn-test.

There is a great tool to see if an ip is or has been an tor exit node. It is called exonerator. You can find this tool here http//exonerator.torproject.org.

Good luck

M.

Even if it is a Proxy/VPN, the IP is still real. What are you asking??

Think they want to know if it is possible to discern whether the IP in the email is the "original" one assigned by their ISP or if they've used a VPN.

Ok if it is so i already answered to that question in my previous post. If you have found one IP address displayed in the email header. You can use online tool to find if an IP is suspected to be a vpn/proxy/tor exit node. You could try to use other techniques like a tracking pixel or catching his ip with a crafted link if you have an active conversation with the sender. Other than that, if you do not have some sort of law enforcement power, there is no way to force the email provider, say google, to reveal you more information about the sender.

You can also use other data in the header (RECEIVED, RECEIVED-SPF) of the email to seek more info about the sender.

Hope this help.
