IP From TCPAccept

4 posts in this topic

Firstly, I've done some research on this topic and haven't been able to find anything. That doesn't mean that I haven't missed anything, so if this topic has already been discussed, I apologize in advance.

I'm interested in setting up a remote command server to make remote IT support via UltraVNC a little smoother. In order to avoid punching port forwarding holes in my client's routers, I've decided to go the reverse connection route. I'd like to be able to see the IP of the client that is attempting to make the connection to aid in client identification and to provide the IP to use for the VNC connection.

What are the options for obtaining the client's IP after TCPAccept? I know of netstat, but that seems a little clunky.

Right from the help file. It was in tcprecv though.

; Function to return IP Address from a connected  socket.
;----------------------------------------------------------------------
Func SockeTtoIP($SHOCKET)
     Local $sockaddr, $aRet
    
     $sockaddr = DllStructCreate("short;ushort;uint;char[8]")

    $aRet = DllCall("Ws2_32.dll", "int", "getpeername", "int", $SHOCKET, _
             "ptr",  DllStructGetPtr($sockaddr), "int*", 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
