$ENV{REMOTE_ADDR}
For that matter, you could use remote_host() from CGI.pm.

Also, try this:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; $|++; use CGI; my $cgi = CGI->new; print $cgi->header, $cgi->start_html, $cgi->pre( ( map { "$_\t$ENV{$_}\n" } keys %ENV ) ), $cgi->end_html;
That was untested, but I'm pretty sure it's right :-)

The remote user's IP address is in $ENV{'REMOTE_ADDR'}, although it's pretty forge-able.

Check Environmental Variables for a snippet that prints out all the environmental variables.
