    Http_x_forwarded_for

    hi i was writing a php script and wanted to find the complete(proxy+actual) ip address of a user.
    i was trying to use HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR to do that..
    however it always returns empty..
    Is this variable still available in php

    coz all the phpinfos i have seen nobody documents
    HTTP_VIA
    and HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR

    Are these headers send at all? Not all proxies do..

    RTFM? http://www.php.net/getenv

    Oh.. And don't rely to much on those headers.. I can put whatever I want in them
