Don't know about facebook, but for aMSN basically the same rules apply as with MSN on windows:

When chatting you are connected to the MSN servers, never the other MSN client. I changes when you do stuff like transfer files > you initiate a direct connection and you could find the IP if you monitor the network traffic.
"Ask the right question and you will receive the right answer. I'm just very sensitive about the right syntax"

Read the rules before you post

ok so if you initiate a transfer with that person what command would you use in terminal to see the actual ip of that person ?

for a quick lookup I would use lsof -i

or record network traffic with fireshark, makes it easier to investigate afterwards

in case you don't have tons of other connections open:

$netstat -nt

It would be a lot easier to get the ip address, if you own a website. All you have to do is have a JavaScript or PHP script that records the IP address as he visits your website.

The access log of the website would record the ip.
