Resolving IP Addresses

Resolving IP Addresses

Question:
I require Visual Basic code to resolve IP addresses stored in firewall logs generated by Checkpoint Firewall1. The aim is to report company access by user (assigned dedicated IP addresses). I have tried several Web site statistical packages with no success. Is writing a VB app the only solution?

Answer:

You did not specify, but if you are using Microsoft Active Server Pages (ASP), you can resolve the IP address of incoming users by using this code in VBScript server-side scripting:

Dim IPAddressIPAddress = Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_ADDR ")

After the previous code runs, the variable “IPAddress” will hold the IP Address of the user that is accessing the current page.
