I want to fetch Ip address of client in my jsp page and want to store on my Database.
I am using following code in Jsp page to fech Ip address, but it is showing the servers Ip address.
<input type="hidden" name="ipaddress" value="<%=request.getRemoteAddr()%>"/>
In usual case the method
getRemotePort()) should returns details of the actual client.
But, if its routed through a proxy, or a differnt servlet engine you would be getting ip of those machines. To tackle these situation you could try below operations
request.getHeader("VIA") --> Gateway request.getHeader("X-FORWARDED-FOR")--> IPaddress
But this could return null if the request is directly from the client. You may handle the situation with some additional conditions to get valid data.
