How can I determine the IP address of a given request from within a controller? For example (in express):

app.post('/get/ip/address', function (req, res) {
    // need access to IP address here
})

Hello @kartik,

In your request object there is a property called connection, which is a net.Socket object. The net.Socket object has a property remoteAddress, therefore you should be able to get the IP with this call:

request.connection.remoteAddress

Hope it helps!!

Thank You!!
