You cannot get the client IP directly in Rugby. The ports are stored in the i/o engine (port-q and object-q), but you cannot see that when a function is invoked (you don't see what client is calling). You restrict access to a set of functions using the /restirct refinement, but I doubt that is what you want. Perhaps a simple private/public key scheme works best here. With all the spoofing going on that is a better idea anyway. --Maarten
