Remote IP Address ($_SERVER) Wrong

Feb 24, 2007

I need to know the remote IP of users to a chatroom I manage here to log troublemakers.

I found the function: $_SERVERREMOTE_ADDR or alternatively $_SERVER["REMOTE_ADDR"]

the strange thing is: when displaying the remote address in the room each user sees his/her correct IP but I myself see _always_ only the address of my site (fixed IP behind a French "livebox" DSL modem). I could understand that I internally to my network see that address as that "livebox" also does the WiFi for the whole house but not the external users who, as mentioned, see the correct IPs themselves.

I'm facing a weird problem for $_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"]

Here is the example:....

Ip Address - Alternative To $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] ?

May 12, 2011

Is there any alternative to the $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']. Which returns the ip address of the computer accessing a site.I'm trying to search about same external ip assigned by router, and got into this:How do two computers connect to same external address through NAT?And found out that the same external ip is assigned if the computers are connected to the same modem.I'm creating a simple login program in php which uses $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] to determine if a user is already logged in somewhere else in the same network. And this won't actually work if those computers are connected to the same modem through the router.

Getting The Remote Address From A <script> Tag?

Aug 13, 2010

I have a page with a tag in it pointing to a php script that generates javascript.

In this php script, I verify the remote ip to see if this ip has the right to use the script.

My question is: how do I get the IP from the machine that embeds the tag?

In $_SERVER, I have REMOTE_ADDR which is MY ip address (the client) and SERVER_ADDR which is the ip of the machine that runs the php script that generates javascript (the server).

But in between those, there's the page that embeds the tag and I need its server IP address.

I'm on HostMonster and I'm trying to setup cron to play nicely with a Drupal install I have running and I'm running into problems trying to code for a condition that says, "IF I'm the server and I'm making the request to do CRON, then do the following..."Basically (in layman's terms), I'm having a hard time trying to figure out how I should code for cron requests from the server, which brings me to the following questions:1.) Do cron jobs always execute from the host server? For example, if $_SERVER[SERVER_ADDR] is always "", does this mean that the 583 bytes sent for cron jobs always come from the same IP address or are there exceptions to this? The reason I ask this is because I have a poor man's byte counter in this cron code I'm working with that sets up a file read and keeps you in the reading loop until the byte count reaches 583 (which, according to my IP logs, is the number of bytes sent with each cron "ping" that gets made.) The code isn't firing, however, because I'm having a hard time making the code run from either cron requests or else from an inconsistency between the IP comparison code I have.2.) Before any cron code gets executed, I have "ignore_user_abort(true);" called at the beginning of the page. Will this effectively process all proceeding code thereafter if cron pings the page? In other words, will using this make the page get processed as if someone traveled to the cron.php page in their browser?

Controller Structured Wrong Way / Code In Wrong Place?

May 15, 2011

I've fairly new to PHP MVC and I'm not 100% sold I'm doing this in the most logical way possible. This is a piece of code from one of my controllers. friend said a majority of this code should be moved into the Model? Is this so? Right now I have a DataAccess layer that does all the SQL work. For User work I have a UserDataAccess object, which will create, update and delete. It appears I'm using something along the lines of the Data Mapper pattern. My Model classes map directly to the database columns on a given table and that's it. I'm continually confused at where each piece of code should go.

Script - Increments IP Address From Defined Starting Address To Defined Ending Address?

Dec 26, 2009

I know I can do this easily by converting the IP addresses to decimal notation first using PHP built in functions like up2long and long2ip. I just want to be able to do the same using the standard IP address notation as an exercise. The problem I am thinking goes like this: Given an starting IP address, say, and an ending IP address, say Make the program that prints all the address numbers in that range (,, … ,,

I was thinking that maybe the way to go would be to make a nested for loop inside a while condition until the first octet of the starting address matches the first octet of the ending address. Then execute the same block of code for the second octet and so on until the program reaches the ending address and finished. I just started learning to program recently so it is quite possible that my of thinking and or writing code is far from elegant. If you were to this, how would you do it?

Capturing IP Address & Blocking IP Address?

Jul 1, 2009

I'm using a php script for my web site which has registration, log-in, etc. When I asked how I might be able to capture the registrants IP address upon registration, I was given this code and this advice:

$userip = $_SERVER[REMOTE_ADDR];

"Remember when you store these values in the database to use these two functions INET_ATON() and INET_NTOA(). One is for inserting the IP and one is for extracting it." I don't know what INET_ATON() and INET_NTOA() are, but my goal is to be able to have a users IP address just in case he spams my site, then he can be blocked, based on the thinking that typically one user has one computer.
