Hi!

I am using REMOTE_ADDR variable to check for user's IP address. My premium user has unique IP address, which is saved in my database. Is it possible for one user to submit another user's IP address? Is it safe to use REMOTE_ADDR variable?

Thanx.

It would be very difficult to forge the IP address when making a page request in ASP. Of course, anything is possible. Somebody *could* spoof their IP. But you're talking about this user having a static unique IP. Somebody would have to hack into that specific computer. In a nutshell, it wouldn't be very easy.
