Does anyone know how to get the IP address of the client hitting a servlet/JSP? Thanks for the help.

Look through HttpServletRequest for getRemote... and see if any will do the job.

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
