Please see this question:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qManageQuestion.jsp?qid=20274914&jsessionid=2593911016807936864

I would like the ability to track the IP address on the following form.  I am slightly modifying the address of my client.

It's on a NT server.

Here's the perl.  The HTML follows after that.  I am only offering 50 points because I am starting to get a bit low!  Hopefully the solution is ver simple.

If it is also easy, I would like to get any other information such as their browser type, refering domain, etc -- anything that is as easily obtainable as their IP

===============PERL SCRIPT FOLLOWS ==============
$|++;
use Net::SMTP;
use CGI;
$q = new CGI;

$ecxfolks='johndoe@blah.com>, johnsmith@blah.com>';
$toddemail='thatch@blah.com>';
$message="This is a Thank you note\nThis is the 2nd line of the the message.";
$user_subject='Thank You!!';

foreach ($q->param){
      $$_=$q->param($_);

      next if /^affiliate_email$/;
      $$_=~ s/^\s+//g;
      $$_=~ s/\s+$//g;
}

@new_from=split(/,\s/,join(', ',$ecxfolks)); ## NOTE the , inside the single quotes

if (!($to)){
      print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
      print "Please go back and enter your email address.BR>\n";
      exit;
}

if (!($name)){
      print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
      print "Please go back and enter your name.BR>\n";
      exit;
}

foreach $new_from (@new_from){
      $smtp = Net::SMTP->new('localhost'); # connect to an SMTP server
      $smtp->mail($to);      ##      use the affiliate address here
      $smtp->to($new_from);     ##     recipients address. Use new_from, not from
      $smtp->data();
      $smtp->datasend("To: ".$new_from."\n");
      $smtp->datasend("Subject: ".$affiliate_subject."\n");
      $smtp->datasend("\n");
        $smtp->datasend("Subject : $affiliate_subject\n");
      $smtp->datasend("Name : $name\n");
      $smtp->datasend("Email : $to\n");
      $smtp->datasend("Home phone : $homephone\n");
      $smtp->datasend("Work phone  : $workphone\n");
      $smtp->datasend("Comments : $comments\n");
      $smtp->dataend();                   # Finish sending the mail
      
      ##  Close the connection
      $smtp->quit;
}


##      Redirect to the Thank you page.
print "Location: https://www.blah.com/html/content/response2.shtml\n\n";

Just add in you script, after line:

$smtp->datasend("Work phone  : $workphone\n");

follow lines:

$smtp->datasend("Referer     : " . $q->referer . "\n");
$smtp->datasend("Remote Host : " . $q->remote_host . "\n");
$smtp->datasend("User Agent  : " . $q->user_agent . "\n");
