which one is better:

        Dim IP As String = Request.UserHostAddress

        'or

        Dim UserHostAddress As String
        Dim instance As HttpRequest
        Dim value As String
        value = instance.UserHostAddress

you can do this with javascript like this:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
<!--
var ip = '<!--#echo var="REMOTE_ADDR"-->';

function ipval() {
document.myform.ipadd.value=ip;
}

window.onload=ipval
// -->
</script>

I tried getting the IP in the code-behind file like this:
...............
"<tr><td bgcolor=#ffffff>" & Request.UserHostAddress & "</td></tr></table>"

but it causes the application to go to the error page ???

and like this:

IPAdd = Request.ServerVariables.GetValues("REMOTE_ADDR").GetValue(0)

"<tr><td bgcolor=#ffffff>" & IPAdd & "</td></tr></table>"

and that too causes an app. error.  Anyone know why it's doing that??

I just want to write the IP address to a text file. Is there an easy way to do this?  thanks

If you are in ASP.NET on the server side code you should be able to do this if nothing else works.

        Dim IPAddress As String
        IPAddress = HttpContext.Current.Request.UserHostAddress

This should give you what you want.

http://www.c-sharpcorner.com/1/get_ip.asp

Also in case of .Net

Using .NET Class

System.Web.HttpContext

There are two ways, either by using:

HttpContext.Current.Request.UserHostAddress;

or

HttpContext.Current.Request.ServerVariables["REMOTE_ADDR"];

The Following Line will get the IP Address of the machine instead of Proxy's IP

HttpContext.Current.Request.ServerVariables["HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR"];

thanks everyone ..
For some reason, the page I put this code in causes the application to go to the error page:


    Dim IPAddress As String

    Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        IPAddress = HttpContext.Current.Request.UserHostAddress
        .........

I do not why it's doing this.
