Does anyone know how (or if it is possible) to get flash to return an ip address from a current user.

thanks in advance

You can pull the IP using javascript and just send that into your movie

var movie = window.document.movie;
var myAddress2 = java.net.InetAddress.getLocalHost();
var ip = myAddress2.getHostAddress();
movie.SetVariable("ip", ip);

I have to add that this JavaScript method only works for Netscape browsers, not for Internet Explorer. Also in Netscape 6.0 it returns 127.0.0.1 (a loopback network connection).

Yes it is true
Author of the script told me , he'll fix it for IE and we'll have it on actionscripts.org as a tutorial

Also that's .asp code. I saw that the original writter was looking Javascript. Just thought I would throw in my two cents.

If you want to use CGI here is a very simple example:

Source files are available. You can find it in the Experiments section.
