Support » Plugin: All In One WP Security & Firewall » three copies of logged in admin with identical IP add

  • Hi
    I just started using AIOWP security, great plugin but I have a query. My logged in users shows three lines with me logged in, all with the same IP address. I wondered if this indicated a problem and why it happens?

    Hi,

    My logged in users shows three lines with me logged in, all with the same IP address. I wondered if this indicated a problem and why it happens?

    Are you all sharing the same IP address? For example: are all of you logging in from an intranet?

    Hi

    Actually it’s just me, there is just one of me, using my desktop machine in this case, so there is only one IP address. The entry is repeated three times, showing three identical logged in users when there’s in fact just me. Strange.

    Hi,

    Your host might be using a proxie server, load-balancers, CloudFlare or something different. To test this theory, go to WP Security -> Settings -> Advanced Settings and play around with the options available from the drop down list.

    These settings are related to the global webserver array: $_SERVER. See link below for more information.

    Let me know if the above helps you in any way.

    Thank you

    Hi

    Thank you very much for this suggestion. It was set to default, I changed it to the next one down which is http_cf_connecting_ip and the problem appears to be resolved. It now just shows me as logged in.

    I’ll update you here if this changes, but thank you very much for your help!

    Regards
    Mike
