    If you mean to display the user's IP address using a client-side script (e.g. a JavaScript) then this simply isn't possible. To my knowledge, there is no client-side feature that allows you to access a user's IP address.

    Why aren't you able to use a server-side solution?

    Well like Kevin said, a Server side solution would be the easiest way to implement this.

    I found this somewhere deep in my hard drive for you though.
    Unfortunately it only works with NS4+ with Java turned on
    (not much of a solution) which I once got from the javascript source.

    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
    <!-- Begin

    <!-- This script and many more are available free online at -->
    <!-- The JavaScript Source!! -->

    if ((navigator.appVersion.indexOf("4.") != -1) && (navigator.appName.indexOf("Netscape") != -1)){
    ip = "" +;
    document.write("Your IP address is " + ip);
    else {
    document.write("IP Address only shown in Netscape with Java enabled!");
    // End -->

    I will try to find you an IE solution in case you can't use server side scripting.

    Good Luck!
