Best way to react based on incoming IP address

Recommended Posts

tornado    0

Hi there,

 

First post here. I have a question that I can't figure out. I am making a timeclock type database for the users at my office. I would like to only allow them to be able to record their "punched in" time when they are at the office, ie at a specific internal subnet. The FMS however is on a public facing server, and needs to remain so, for all the iPad and remote users in the field. I do not wish to restrict any other database based on IP, only the time clock database. What is my best recourse? Based on my research, I don't think it's possible to get the remote users IP address. I believe I'll need to do something with respect to DNS and something related to IIS, But I'm not sure what that is. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to accomplish this?

 

Thanks,

Joe

What are they suing for the timeclock, their browser?  Or FMP/FMG?

 

If the latter, it's just a matter of using the Get(systemIPaddress)

My goal was for the browser to be the primary client since 98% of them do not have FMP on their OS.

 

Thanks
