Getting a client's IP address
Posted on 1999-01-14
I am interested in identifying a client which activates a cgi/servlet on my server. I would like to use his IP address as the identifier. How can I read this identifier in my cgi/servlet? I know the cgi variables REMOTE_HOST and REMOTE_ADDR give me some information about the client, but it is not necessarily his exact IP. I think it's only his network IP. Is there something else?
