Hey Macloversss, I recently had my laptop stolen , and was wondering if there's a way to trace my laptops ip address as it connects to the internet. I can see my laptop being online through Skype. I have had my drop-box shared folders setup with my brother's laptop , I can easily transfer files to my own computer. if it helps , my laptop was running the latest mac os x , and is connected to the internet some time on during the day. I am planning to drop a file in my Drop-box and find the IP as the transfer starts . How do I find that ip address? is such thing possible? is there a file that would allow me to remote desktop with my laptop? what are your suggestions?
