Remote Addr Local Testing

Recommended Posts

Hello I was wondering how would I get $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] to work with local testing?

Whenever I run the script at the host computer it always returned the address of the router, but if done remotely it will display the correct ip address.

Thanks, Lockit.

sorry, than i'm not sure about what you mean, because the solution i gave does not need any changes in code

 

esp. if you define the variable $TEST using an include statement..

 

include 'test.inc.php';

$ip=$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']

if ($TEST)  {
    $ip="another ip-address";
}

 

and in this 'test.inc.php':

<?php
$TEST=True;
?>

 

after testing you only need to change the 'test.inc.php' file.....

Hmm, I never was good with explanations.

I am not 100% sure something like this would work but what I am attempting falls along the lines of:

if($_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] == "192.168.2.1") {
  $ip = (Some method to retrieve the real IP.);
} else {
  $ip = $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];
}

seems this works every 5 attempts, however it uses the domain name instead of the numerical IP for the socket export.

 

if($_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] == "192.168.2.1") {
  $address = $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'];
} else {
  $address = $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];
}
