How can my server base JSP program get a remote client's IP address ?
Posted on 2003-11-07
I have a client JSP that invokes a server base JSP to do something. It works flawlessly, but now I would like to build into the server side JSP a feature that will restrict the usage of this neat little system to only a few IP numbers we trust. Unfortunately it is not as easy as I thought it would be.
I am trying to use getremoteaddr(), however it always returns 127.0.0.1 as the remote user's IP address, which is obviously incorrect.
Can anyone tell me how I can get the real IP of a remote user?
The server side JSP is on a Red Hat Linux 7.1 system, with Java 1.4, and Tomcat.
