    If the user logged in under two different screen names but used the same computer the IP address would not change....

    Yes.

    I find it strange that you're a moderator on a forum but you don't know how to use the controls... normally IPs are based on posts rather than users so you'd find an "IP" icon by each post, rather than find IP address for a username. So find a post by one user and access the IP and if it's decent forum software there will be a link saying "Find other users who have used this IP".

    Watch out because depending on their connection and ISP their IP address might change reguarly! But it wouldn't change in the same session, like if they logged on as one user, logged out and then logged in as someone else without going offline first.
