I have a guestbook.  The CGI script (guestbook.cgi) posts the information to
a HTML page.

guestbook.html => guestbook.cgi => register.html

This is part of the guestbook.cgi file:

print ENTRYFILE "<p><b>$now\n</b></p>";
print ENTRYFILE "<b>Name:</b> $in{'Name'}\n";
print ENTRYFILE "<p><b>Address:</b> $in{'Address1'}\n</p>";
print ENTRYFILE "<p><b>Address:</b> $in{'Address2'}\n</p>";
print ENTRYFILE "<p><b>City:</b> $in{'City'}\n</p>";
print ENTRYFILE "<p><b>State/Provence:</b> $in{'State/Provence'}\n</p>";
print ENTRYFILE "<p><b>Zip Code:</b> $in{'Zip Code'}\n</p>";
print ENTRYFILE "<p><b>Country:</b> $in{'Country'}\n</p>";
print ENTRYFILE "<p><b>Age:</b> $in{'Age'}\n</p>";
print ENTRYFILE "<p><b>E-mail:</b> $in{'email'}\n</p>";
print ENTRYFILE "<p><b>Home Page:</b> $in{'Homepage'}\n</p>";

The top line:  print ENTRYFILE "<p><b>$now\n</b></p>";
posts the date and time the information was posted.  Is there any other
lines I could add that will post any information, such as their IP address
or any other information that might help me find out who posted a message
without indentifying themselves.

I need help ASAP!   Thank you

insert these two lines into the script:
print ENTRYFILE "<b>Host Name:</b> $ENV{REMOTE_HOST}\n";
print ENTRYFILE "<b>Host IP:</b> $ENV{REMOTE_ADDR}\n";
This will put into the file the name of the host that
the user is using, and also the IP of that host.
I use it for all incomming cgi emails from my site,
it's a very good way to determine legit stuff.

Hope this helps,
