Yesterday I have explained You all that How to collect information about the Websites and organisations….
Today i will continue With Footprinting and take you to some more deep level… And then tell you how to make Blueprints from them.. So read on….


First of all We will focus on Unearthing the Basic Information about the site… i.e the IP and server informations..
I will Show you with the help on snapshots :
First go to START –> RUN —>type cmd—>then type tracert www.websitename.com
Here we will use two basic commands in command Prompt(cmd): tracert  www.webistetobeanlysed.com

and ping www.websitename.com

It will look something like this:

Here I explain what it shows…
We trace routed www.amulive.com
1. Shows Our Gateway of connectivity.
2. Shows our Outgoing Footprint Ip(i.e the our IP that is being analyzed by website)
3. Shows Connectivity passes through which service Provider. I uses BSNL but its showing airtel because I prefer DNS of Airtel for surfing Quick).
Next steps showing the Ip’s of Webservers through which amulive is being maintained.

After This We will came to now the IP of the Website and Ip of itz web servers which are being used further.
website Ip can be used to gather more information about the website..

    For better understanding the tracert and ping command visit :

    This will help you understand this better…Also when you type tracert command then u will get different Ip on different computers.. because different systems has different IP …

    These analysis are very loud.
    First, we must learn to anonymous ourselves so that they won’t have any trace about us to carry reverse tracert.
