How to get Client IP Address in Laravel 5

Sometimes you need to track the IP address of the visitors for different reasons. In this tutorial, I would like to show you, how to get the IP address of clients in Laravel application.

In PHP you use super global variable $_SERVER to get ip address but in Laravel you will get ip address by calling Illuminate\Http\Request‘s getClientIp() method.

Methods to get Client IP Address

 Request::getClientIp();
 //or 
function echoIPAddress(Request $request) {
   echo $request->getClientIp();
}
// or
function echoIPAddress(Request $request) {
   echo $request->ip();
}
