This guide teaches you how to get IPs over xbox live, this method will also work on any device including playstation.
To get IPs we need to download and install the program Cain & Abel.
The tool we will be using for this tutorial is Cain & Abel. It has been around forever and works flawlessly for pulling IPs.
Make sure to set any anti virus to ignore Cain since it is sometimes detected as a false positive however it is completely safe.
Download Cain & Abel straight from the official website.
Right click the installer (ca_setup.exe), choose Run as Adminstrator.
Install Cain, if it asks to if you want to install WinPcap choose Yes.
Go to your Cain folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Cain), right click “Cain.exe”, select “Properties”, click “Compatibility” tab, check “Run this program as an administrator”.
Run Cain, click the “Configure” tab.
Click the “Sniffer” tab, here you are going to select your network adapter, choose the adapter that has an IP address, in other words one that is not 0.0.0.0. Press OK to save settings.
Click the “Start Sniffer” which is next to the yellow nuclear symbol, then press the “Sniffer” tab, then press the Blue cross (see screenshot below).
Select “All hosts in my subnet”, press “OK”.
Now you should see some IP addresses pop up, one will be your router, and others are devices on your network, so one of these is your Xbox IP.
Click the “ARP” tab and you will notice the blue cross is no longer clickable, to fix this just right click the “white space” (this is a awkward feature of cain, see screenshot below)
In the first box click your router IP (usually 192.168.1.1), on the second box click your Xbox IP.
Now click the yellow nuclear symbol to start getting IPs!
