getting client ip when connected through bluebox

Postby Eirik81 » 31 Mar 2008, 14:25

I have a custom login extension and need to get the ip address (for security purposes) of the client that is trying to log in. The following works when the client connects normally:

Code: Select all

function handleInternalEvent(evt)
{
   if (evt.name == "loginRequest")
   {
      var chan = evt["chan"];
      var ip = chan.socket().getInetAddress().getHostAddress();
   }
}

But it fails when the client connects through the bluebox. Is there a way to get the client ip that works with the bluebox?

Unfortunately no, the BlueBoxed users will all appear to be connected from the localhost.
This is also explained in the BlueBox f.a.q.
