Hi all

I'm having a problem getting real IP address with ASP of my computer on which IIS is running  

I'm using :
Request.ServerVariables("LOCAL_ADDR")
or
Request.ServerVariables("REMOTEL_ADDR")

but they both return 127.0.0.1 which is a localhost IP , but I need to get  real IP address
of my computer in the network

Thank you in advance

Kaligal,

Pl Check whether the server(with IIS) is assigned with an IP Address and exists in network.

Also note that,
Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_ADDR") - will give the client machine's IP Address and
Request.ServerVariables("LOCAL_ADDR") - will always give the Server's IP Address.
