in reply to LWP and Remote IP

You don't need to hack LWP at all: the information is available to you via the header() method on the response object.

use LWP::UserAgent; my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new; my $res = $ua->get(''); print $res->header('client-peer');

However, I don't see the availability of the client-peer header documented in the HTTP::Response or HTTP::Headers POD pages, so this may not work in previous or future LWP releases.

(Works for me with LWP::UserAgent 2.033, HTTP::Message 1.56 and HTTP::Headers 1.62.)

    The LWP which comes with ActivePerl 5.6.1 doesn't set this pseudo-header.

    Kanji, thank you, that undocumented property was exactly what I was looking for. Working great :-)
