Hacker warning: No call to get the remote client IP in server or AP mode

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 :confused:

A solution is now in place:
