    Am using the [_remote_ip] shortcode to track a message sender's IP address, however would also like to track their Remote Address / REMOTE ADDR.

    Any suggestions welcome on how to add it in (if it can be).

    Thanks

    What do you mean by "their Remote Address / REMOTE ADDR"? Is that different from what [_remote_ip] shows?

    Yes, it would normally show the ISP details - for example "bb.sky.com", "broadband.bt.com" etc.

    Where have found it useful is by blocking certain server systems by name instead of by IP address.
