Request IP from Server

Postby canibozz » Wed May 09, 2018 3:24 pm

Hello guys,

anyone knows what Steam does with the IP when it comes to Requesting?
Iam sending a Request to my API via Python.
My API is fetching the IP of the requester and comparing with a DB.
In my DB i saved the IP of my server let's say:

Code: Select all

133.71.133.713:27015


The fetched IP via $_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR'] (because of Cloudflare protection) is a IPV6 like this:

Code: Select all

1337:1x3x3:cafe:7x1:0:0:0:1"



What is Steam doing?
Why is my Request IP not my Server IP?

Any clues?

Cheers,
CANi

Steam has nothing to do with that. Are you sure the IPv4 address isn't the same like the IPv6 address?

Okay, it was an error with my gaming server. It had ipv4 and ipv6 enabled.
I disabled it and now it works.

Cheers!
