Re: Localhost IP Shown in Forum Registration

I would have figured that both the registration IP and last known IP are coming from the TCP/IP packet, not from anything supplied from the user. This would be hard to spoof on purpose.

Do you have any type of hardware or software in front of the website that might rewrite packets? For instance, on our corporate website external users first go through a firewall before hitting the website. All users appear to come from the firewall's IP address rather then their true public IP address.
