Get IP Information

Morning All,

We wanted to know on the admin console under sessions you can view the active connections and IP address of the user! Is this stored in a table anywhere at all. We are using MS SQL 2005 for your database storage and I have looked but cannot find anything!

Any ideas on where this data is stored or does it poll each client when you open the page to get the presence status and IP information.

As far as I know, this information is stored nowhere.

When displaying the page, openfire simply request the IP address of the current sessions.

It shouldn’t be too hard to create a plugin that can log this information to a file or in the database.

You don’t know anyone that could write a plug in then as I know nothing about JAVA.

Worth a try


srt has created a Community Plugin that would do the job, but it currently only supports a MySQL back-end.

The plugin is described here: http://www.igniterealtime.org/community/docs/DOC-1320

Openfire 3.6.4 now support this. Its in the sessions tab when you click on an active user.
