    user id

    hello

    building a login system for my website and i need to know how do i get the name of the computer the user is on? i have already figured out how to get the ipaddress but testing that on our network here if i login on one computer all others get logged on automatically so i need to be able to identify the particular computer so as to prevent this.

    any help appreciated

    I dont think you can get those types of details through PHP, only IP.

    Thats at least what I know, and I checked the php.net manual on this, so I dont think its possible.

    Use cookies (session id) to uniquely identify browsers. That would probably be the best method.
