You could try whois or traceroute. whois will give you the
registered address of the people who run the server and
traceroute will tell you how many "hops" and time for each hop
between your pc and the server. I use both from time to time to
see who is hammering my firewall from time to time. Any one who
is constantly hammering I ping for an hour or two to let them
know I’m watching them!
