Connecting IP address

2 posts in this topic

Is there any way to reliably get the IP address of the person connecting on an accepted socket?

...By "reliably" I mean getting the real IP (or at least the IP from TCP/IP syntax) rather than trusting the client to tell the truth.

Answer if you can :) , I am looking for some way to do IP-based bans/ignores for chat clients etc.

Thank You.

PS: I tried to search this but "IP" is too short to use as a keyword and 'TCP/IP', 'IPaddress' and etc. - didn't tell me much.

*sighs* seem to be answering my own questions alot lately :)

after alot of searching I found it here:

Topic 50215

Func SocketToIP ($Socket)
    ;Retrives a clients IP address
    Local $Sockaddr = DLLStructCreate ("short;ushort;uint;char[8]")
    Local $aRet = DLLCall ("Ws2_32.dll", "int", "getpeername", "int", $Socket, _
            "ptr", DLLStructGetPtr ($Sockaddr), "int_ptr", DLLStructGetSize ($Sockaddr))
    If Not @error And $aRet[0] = 0 Then
        $aRet = DLLCall ("Ws2_32.dll", "str", "inet_ntoa", "int", DLLStructGetData ($Sockaddr,3))
        If Not @error Then $aRet = $aRet[0]
    Else
        $aRet = 0
    EndIf
    $Sockaddr = 0
    Return $aRet
EndFunc  ;==>SocketToIP
