I maybe silly doing it this way and please if you have a better suggestions I would love to hear it...
I am trying to get the Remote IP address, but the native PHP $_SERVER variable are not giving me the information that I need to work out the clients country.
Basically I am building a site for a .com.au company and they want to either tell their .co.nz customers that they should be going to the .co.nz site not the .com.au site (hope that makes sense).
So I am trying to get the users IP address but it is always coming back as 192.168.*.* etc because they are behind routers etc.
I have found a site that returns a JSON value for the IP address that has been correct each time I have tried it and a friend in NZ has also tried.
Anyway, I notice that http://doc.silverstripe.org/restfulservice doesn't support JSON. Is there any way for me to get this information into a variable so I can feed it into my other function that pulls back the country of the IP address...
Thanks in advance,
