Do you have a Windows domain? If so, I'd write a small batch logon script that runs something like


along with the ipconfig /all

command and writes it to a file on a file server. You can then rip through those text files and look for the IP address.

It isn't pretty but it might help you track them down.

I like this option, but I am not so sure it's gonna help me. I have already gone to each of our windows PCs and run IPconfig and none of them have the address that keeps making outbound connections. I have blocked outbound connections on port 25 at this time, but I'd still like to track this PC down so I can image it back to a clean state.

What's weird is that I have personally walked to each of the PCs and servers in the building and checked them for that particular IP address and I have yet to be able to identify one that has it. Either I have a bad case of cranial rectosis or it's hidden well.

I'd like to think that it's the latter, but it's probably the former.
