    i building a website in a LAN which will not be published on the
    internet. but the users in the LAN are accessing the web site through
    an ISA firewall server. i would like to ask if there is a way to get
    the ip address of the users to monitor their access to the web site. i
    tried to use the servervariable REMOTE_ADDR but of course it returns
    the firewall's ip address.
    can any one tell how can i do get the ip address of the users to save
    it in a database.
    thank you

  2. If you're only inside the LAN, why not require the user to authenticate,
    then you can get LOGON_USER instead, which is likely more valuable than IP
    address (and in general, can be used to map back to IP address).

    ASP/IIS can only see what the last hop shows it; there is no way to get back
    to the original user's machine if the one exposed is the firewall.
