    Get IP address


    I wanted to know if it is possible to have a dynamic field in umbraco forms (4.4.3). In fact, I wanted to display the IP address of the user filling in when the admin receives the form. I tried to add a default value [@Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_ADDR")] but it not working. Any idea how this can be achieved?

    Hi Dennis

    thanks a lot for your reply. I have tried but the field is blank. The forms version is 4.2.1 and not 4.4.3. It could be because of that?

    Did you find a solution to this problem, please @aaeda?

    Before Umbraco Forms, I used to use Umbraco Contour for some of my projects and I could capture the IP details of the webuser simply by adding something like this; Client IP {record.ip}, but this and similar combinations don't seem to be working. I have tried @Dennis Aean's suggestion as well as it made sense, but it didn't work either.

    PS: Umbraco Forms logs the IP address details in the UFRecords table in the IP column. PS 2: Umbraco Forms version is 4.3.3

    UPDATE: Here is the solution;

    1. Go to your Umbraco Forms form
    2. Add Question, type will be Hidden
    3. Set Default Value as [@Remote_addr]

    That is it! Hope this helps if you need it!
