Hello,
I am using jsp,javascript and want to get IP address of client machine. My application will run on local network, not on internet.
Thanks

The HttpServletRequest object -which is available in JSP pages as "request"- has the getRemoteAddr method that returns the client IP address.

No, getRemoteAddr gets the address of the client machine,
getLocalAddr gets the address of the host machine.


getRemoteAddr

public java.lang.String getRemoteAddr()

Returns the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the client or last proxy that sent the request. For HTTP servlets, same as the value of the CGI variable REMOTE_ADDR.

Returns:
a String containing the IP address of the client that sent the request

I think you're mistaken. It may be that the value is not correct after the request went through a NATed firewall or a server in front of the servlet container (like an Apache httpd); in that case, talk to the sysadmins how you to get at the client IP.
