$ npm install remoteip


var remoteip = require('remoteip');

// Get the IP address for the user.
var ipAddress = remoteip.get(req);


The client IP address is determined by the following:

  1. Check the x-forwarded-for HTTP header for a remote IP address.
  2. Check the req.connection.remoteAddress property.
