Use something like:

<?php
echo $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']
?>

This will display the IP address of the remote user. Take a look at the link below for some more interesting variables.

To see all that is stored in the _SERVER array:

<html>
<body>
<pre>
<?php
  print_r($_SERVER);  // prints all elements of the server array
?>
</pre>
</body>
</html>

It is not very pretty, but there you can see what you can get.

$_ENV does not contain client information, only server info.
$_COOKIES and $_SESSION is only variables you have stored on the client and is useless for anyone else than the server developer.

If you want browser information like resulution and stuff, you will have to use javascript. Take a look at the sourcecode of the page you referred to see how this is done.

If you want country information, you will need to use some a IP-country service. Maxmind.com has a PHP module that implements this.

Part of the question: "...give ALL informations about USER..."

iceboxman answer is correct, but didn't answer the question. (ALL info)
Rajkumar_G answer is also correct, but it describes how to show server info instead of user info. (about USER)

The site http://www.showmyip.com/ shows info from the client request, dns lookup, country lookup and browser info from javascript as I answered.

Actually, my answer did include showing all information:

I gave a reference to the PHP variables that display all the information that is needed.  The rest of the people pretty much regurgitated what I said.

"This will display the IP address of the remote user. Take a look at the link below for some more interesting variables.

http://www.php.net/manual/en/reserved.variables.php#reserved.variables.server"

The information displayed on www.showmyip.com can all be obtained by looking at the information provided.

Ok, sorry about the link. That is true, the information in the $_SERVER variable is described there. But this can not give all the information about the user that is displayed on showmyip.com. Take a closer look, it does for instance not include screen resolution, nor does it include country information (only prefered language or ip address), etc...

So I suggest we split the points if ok by iceboxman?

iceboxmanCommented:
Your right.  Screen resolution can only be given by JavaScript.  You can see that if you look at the page source of www.showmyip.com.

As for the point split, that's fine.
