cURL HTTP POST

Recommended Posts

I am sending HTTP posts via cURL from HTML forms that come from an outside webserver to another outside server.  I need to randomize the IP address of the post.  Does anyone know how this would be done?

To randomly use an IP address. First put them in an array, then use the rand function to get a random number between 1 and the amount of ip addresses you have in your array. Then use the rand number to get the IP address from the array of IPs. Like so:
[code=php:0]// array of IPs
$ips = array("127.0.0.1",
            "129.6.85.66",
            "198.0.65.5");

// get random number for ip id
$ipid = rand(1, count($ips))-1;

// get IP address
// $ips[$ipid] is the code needed to get the IP Address from the array of IPs
echo $ipid . ' - ' . $ips[$ipid];[/code]

Thank you for the reply.  That helps.  It may be necessary however to use a proxy server down the road.  Is there a way to do this with a cURL HTTP POST?
