Applet and trace route

Posted on 2002-04-05

I have a Java applet running in a Web page.  If possible, I need to determine from within the applet the trace route that the user took to reach the Web site.

Further, it would be acceptable if I could just get the IP address of the client machine on which the applet is running.

I understand that applet security is likley to prevent this but any help would be appreciated.

have you tried InetAddress.getLocalHost().getHostAddress()?

Yes.  This returns "127.0.0.1", the "localhost" address.  I need the actual IP address.

also, can you use serverside scripting (cgi/servlets)?

if so, then you can have your applet get the traceroute from there.
