Topic: Hacker warning: No call to get the remote client IP in server or AP mode  (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic

david-

A fundamental for all html server applications is a call to get the IP address of the remote client.

This address is used to:
1) log the details of the client
2) facilitate basic IP blocking against hackers

Strangely there is a remote ip call in the wifi101 udp library ( WiFiUDP.remoteIP() ) and nothing for server/client applications.

Previous arduino wifi/ethernet libraries have supported remoteip for servers.

I would like to see the situation remedied and would be interested to read comments from others.

You are right, I was proting some arduino library using WiFi 101 and there you have it, no remoteIp or remotePort on TCP, only the UDP class.

Hummm  :o  :smiley-confuse:
