I am writing some basic client server code, and I need to get the ip address of the client so I  can log it. I use the following...

int sockfd, newsockfd, clilen;
struct sockaddr_in   cli_addr;

...
set up listen on sockfd
...

clilen = sizeof(cli_addr);
newsockfd = accept(sockfd, (struct sockaddr *) &cli_addr, &clilen);

..
process communications on newsockfd.

I have tried several iocntl and fcntl calls, but all I get is garbage. I tried getpeername, and getsocketname, but all I get is unitelligable garbage.

any ideas?

Your cli_addr structure contains the address in its sin_addr member field.
Check out  inet_ntoa() from your man pages (it converts an internet address
to a dotted decimal string).
