    Access Log Need Help.


    In my access log file, I found a lot of records from the same ip, I think that it may not be the real ip of the visitor.
    Can anyone tell me how to get the real ip of the visitor?

    Thanks.

    You are probably seeing the IP address of a proxy server that sits between your server and the client machine. I don't think there is a reliable way to tell what the client's IP address is in this case.

    If you are managing your own server, you might try modifying your log record format to include "referer" information. This won't give you the IP, but it will tell you the site the user came from to get to yours. That might or might not be a useful clue depending on your situation.

    Hope this helped!
