ip location lookup

P: 178

Can anyone tell me how I can get the users ip address and location? Do the ip addresses fall into different ranges per country or something?

I believe you have to have a database of ip's->Country->State->City
and use ajax to query this database

A simple search in google will tell you a lot :). Anyway, as of me, there are ways to find the ip of the client using java and i believe there are also javascript ways of doing it.

And about your next question,
Do the ip addresses fall into different ranges per country or something?
again, as of my knowledge, YES.

Not with JavaScript. You could use some Java (with permissions on some browsers) or server-side code.

Hi You can't trace the actual IP of the machine If you are using Internet.
As this comes after masking by router.But anyways you can get that in local intranet perfectly and upto much in internet as
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. HttpServletRequest reg = 
  2. (HttpServletRequest)FacesContext.getCurrentInstance).getExternalContext).getRequest();//Instance creation You can create of your own in your manner
  3.        reg.getRemoteUser();
  4.             reg.getRemoteHost();
  5.             reg.getRemotePort();
  6.             reg.getRemoteAddr();
With these all you can have user related information

I don,t have that much idea about finding the users Ip address ,But if you have some ones IP address you can find the location of the IP address by using the site And those locations are not the perfect location of the user because the IP you are providing will some how shows the origin only .
