Getting client IP address or hostname

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

I am creating a database hosted on FM Server to be accessed using IWP. One of the design requirements is to be able to log either the machine name or IP address of the client machine. Is there a way to accomplish this? The only solution I've been able to find involves PHP, but I am hoping there's a simpler alternative.

Many thanks!

No, nothing simpler. You could use an HTML page with javascript that you display in a web viewer and then "scrape" the content of that web viewer so you can store the IP address in a field.

That's not as easy to do as it sounds - running Javascript by itself does not change the web viewer's source or contents attributes.
