Hi, I have a form that users vote with, The voting is limited to once per ip address, this is great for individuals but in a network situation only one computer seems able to vote. I would have used sessions and/or cookies but my client doesn't want to have any user Auth features, i figured ip restriction was the way to go, to get the ip address I used
$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];

Does anyone have any advice/suggestions

xtian

if you have your dbtable setup to store ip address you can do this

$getip=mysql_query("select * from your table");
while($getip2=mysql_fetch_array($getip))(
if($getip2[your_ip_colummn_name]=$_SERVER[REMOTE_ADD]){
echo "Sorry you have already completed this form";
}else{
echo "your form";
}

The Short One

hopfully this helps if it doesn't sorry
i won't write the code for you!!! you don't learn that way
