when I use
myAddress=java.net.InetAddress.getLocalHost();
I got "java is undefined"  error

If I can't use this( in NS), what can I use to get the client's ip address?

thanks

lewis

I'm not sure that you can do this with Javascript.  Maybe you can but I don't know how.

You can certainly do this with ASP though

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<META NAME="GENERATOR" Content="Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0">
<TITLE></TITLE>
</HEAD>
<BODY>
  <P>Your Ip Address is <%=Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_ADDR")%> </P>
</BODY>
</HTML>

For an example of this look at

http://www4.ewebcity.com/daveamour

Look at the bottom left hadn corner

You can get free ASP hosting by the way at http://www.ewebcity.com and this is all without banners or pop up ads.

Worth checking out if your not into ASP.

Cheers

Dave

As far as I am aware the following are the only Browser/Client properties available through Javascript.

Note some of these are arrays such as plugin

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<META NAME="GENERATOR" Content="Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0">
<TITLE></TITLE>
</HEAD>
<BODY>

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=javascript>
<!--
  document.write ("appCodeName - " + navigator.appCodeName + "<Br>");
  document.write ("appMinorVersion - " + navigator.appMinorVersion + "<Br>");
  document.write ("appName - " + navigator.appName + "<Br>");
  document.write ("appVersion - " + navigator.appVersion + "<Br>");
  document.write ("cookieEnabled - " + navigator.cookieEnabled + "<Br>");
  document.write ("cpuClass - " + navigator.cpuClass + "<Br>");
  document.write ("mimeTypes - " + navigator.mimeTypes + "<Br>");
  document.write ("onLine - " + navigator.onLine + "<Br>");
  document.write ("opsProfile - " + navigator.opsProfile + "<Br>");
  document.write ("platform - " + navigator.platform + "<Br>");
  document.write ("plugins - " + navigator.plugins + "<Br>");
  document.write ("systemLanguage - " + navigator.systemLanguage + "<Br>");
  document.write ("userAgent - " + navigator.userAgent + "<Br>");
  document.write ("userLanguage - " + navigator.userLanguage + "<Br>");
  document.write ("userProfile - " + navigator.userProfile + "<Br>");
//-->
</SCRIPT>

</BODY>
</HTML>

This is a Javascript question isn't it?  Or did you post it in the wrong area?

This is a cross browser IP grabber.. It works in IE due to a CGI call... Enjoy
