Has anyone any idea on the way to get the client IP address when running a Java Server Page (JSP) ? I've looked at the java.net.InetAddress class and it looks good, but all I get is the server's IP address. The solution musyt work for both IE and Netscape.

Thanks in advance !

Invoke the getRemoteAddr() method on the request object available to your JSP file.

String remoteIP = request.getRemoteAddr();

Hello Terajiv,

The request object is an instance of HttpServletRequest. HttpServletRequest extends ServletRequest. The getRemoteAddr() method belongs to ServletRequest.
