Hi seriesce,

You are unable to use REMOTE_ADDR to get the user's IP address because all your website's traffic is routed through a cache server first, to help speed up your site.

Instead, please use $_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR'] to get the user's IP address. ;)

Thank you,

as for --> "You are unable to use REMOTE_ADDR..."
x10hosting's free-hosting server [ xo4 ] shows for both - $_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR'] and $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] --> the remote address
My understanding is - [ xo4 ] - which is running [ Apache ] - is on the other side of the [ Varnish ] server

Yup. I'm working with management to implement this fix for xo1, xo2, and xo3.
