port-share to allow remoteip to web server

Post by penguinjeff » Sat May 01, 2021 2:50 am

Not sure this is possible but I would like to be able to see the ip address of the remote computer that is accessing my server on the redirect.

I created a work around for now that requires a popup and a session to get the ip from another port.

The idea is that some free wifi's may only allow tcp ports 80 and 443 out. I would like to be able to both vpn to and see a https page on port 443. I use port-share to achieve this on port 443.
Further more it might be useful to have the ip of the machine accessing my sight.

How my current workaround works:
Because you can not use ajax to get an unencrypted page from an encrypted page you must use a popup.
If you send info to establish a session across the unencrypted channel you can then use a encrypted channel to get information based on the session.
