in reply to LWP User Agent Difficulty

1) You can't. The web server is using getpeername() or something similar to find the endpoint of the socket, and then making it available to cgi-bin programs. This makes it a somewhat trustworthy source of where the client is coming from.

2) I'm not clear why you need to do that. I suppose you could set up a squid proxy on the client's machine and route your requests through it.
