Hi, is there a bullet-proof method to get the IP Address of the physical client that is connected to a RAP (or Tabris) server?|
I see in RWT we have:
...but this may not return the IP address of the client machine itself - it seems to return our proxy server's IP address instead, on our network, which is not good enough for our applications.
Also, this method does not appear to be available in Tabris (RWT.getRequest() hardly has anything implemented), so I need something more generic that will work accurately across all RAP/Tabris clients.
The background to this is that I need to be able to identify each physical device/machine that connects into my RAP server, as I'd like to store preferences for that machine. Perhaps there is another way to do it?
Just because you can doesn't mean you should

the SettingStore cookie is set to expire in 3 months after the last
'access'. With every SettingStore access this cookie is prolonged for
another 3 months.
