PHP: Getting your user's IP Address

It's easy, just use $SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']. Echoing the user's IP address would look something like this:

echo "IP Address: " . $SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];
But that works only in PHP versions greater than 4.1.0. If you're still using earlier versions, use HTTP_SERVER_VARS, and for heavens' sake, upgrade.
