About Retrieving Client's IP Address

django-ipware is a third-party Django application designed to provide a more robust and accurate solution for retrieving a client's IP address in a Django project. It overcomes limitations in scenarios involving proxy servers, load balancers, or multiple layers of network infrastructure.

from ipware import get_client_ip

client_ip, is_public = get_client_ip(request)

Occasionally the client_ip is undetectable and will be set to None.
