i recently developed one web server ISAPI application via Delphi ...a dll is generated ...

i hope to get client user ip address ...so, i use TwebRequest.remoteIP ....however, it comes out internal IP address which is 192.168.0.xxx, is there anyway i can get their external IP address which can uniquely identify each client user ?


thanks

maybe you connect to local network or remote via VPN ... where is the client located ?

Hello
  TWebRequest.RemoteAddr will return the external IP, not the internal, As Ivanov_G  said before,

  You need to test your ISAPI from outside your LAN

I tried to access my dll outside a LAN, but it always give me 192.168.0.11, i did install firewall in my LAN, is it  because of the firewall settings ?
i just want to uniquely identify each user who access my dll .....

I have no idea what exactly you are doing there, but this works.

Can you create a simple DLL, which output the RemoteAddr and give me the URL... ?
