Is it possible to log IP address


Recommended Posts

I'm making an attendance tracking db and would like to be able to log the IP address of anyone logging in. I need to be able to limit login to only work from a set range of addresses and I also like to print the daily report in IP address order. Logins will be done over the internet from XP and OS-X machines


I have an existing database I built in Alpha Five but wanted to redo it in FileMaker for various reasons.


Also, can I build this in FMP 8.5 and then put it on an 8.0 server?

Answers to both questions: yes


Get (SystemIPAddress) returns the former, and you can trap for it and compare it to a list of approved IPs in a script you've set to run when file is initially open; and any file of the ".fp7" format (i.e., from FileMaker 7 through FileMaker 9) can be hosted on Server 8.

OK, I had my first live test last week and Get(SystemIPAddress) is logging the IWP host's address for everyone that logs in. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug or IWP limitation?

You didn't mention IWP before now. IWP is a different animal.


I honestly don't know. Let's wait for someone more qualified in webbystuff to provide an answer.
