Hey Guys,

I wonder if someone could tell me this, is it possible for someone to track you down via WLM?

I know it uses proxy servers for the communication and that if someone sends a file that it is possible to make a connection that way. However the new WLM has a picture sharing thing where the picture just pops up rather than it being copied to your computer...is it possible to obtain the other persons IP from any part of the new WLM?

Thanks

What about the picture sharing? Does that make a direct connection to your computer?
