Getting the Orginal IP Address - PHP function


How to get Actual IP address when the website is accessed using a proxy server?


Although there are some snippets available in web ( or you can code it yourself) which checks for the flag HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR in the header information.

Some example snippets:

################################################

FUNCTION #1

function GetUserIP() {

if (isset($_SERVER)) {

if (isset($_SERVER["HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR"]))
return $_SERVER["HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR"];

if (isset($_SERVER["HTTP_CLIENT_IP"]))
return $_SERVER["HTTP_CLIENT_IP"];

return $_SERVER["REMOTE_ADDR"];
}

if (getenv('HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR'))
return getenv('HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR');

if (getenv('HTTP_CLIENT_IP'))
return getenv('HTTP_CLIENT_IP');

return getenv('REMOTE_ADDR');
}




FUNCTION #2

function get_real_IP_address()
{
if (!empty($_SERVER['HTTP_CLIENT_IP'])) //check ip from share internet
{
$ip=$_SERVER['HTTP_CLIENT_IP'];
}
elseif (!empty($_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR'])) //to check ip is pass from proxy
{
$ip=$_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR'];
}
else
{
$ip=$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];
}
return $ip;
}

################################################





both the functions checks for the value of server value HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR .. if it is set then the IP address value is taken from that, else it take the value of $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']

You can see that both functions above does the same operation to determine the actual IP address of a web request through a proxy.
