How to get a socket's foreign ip address and port

Forget that. I found a sol’n: ruby-talk:22493

Sorry for the noise.

Hi All,

I’m using Ruby 1.6.6 (Andy’s version) on Win NT 4 SP5 or 6,
and Win XP.
I wrote a simple TCP server with the following accept loop:

def accept_loop
	session = nil
	req = ''
	while(session = @server.accept)
	   p Socket.getnameinfo(session.getpeername)
  	   req = session.read(200)
  	   verify_request(req)
  	   session.write(@reply)
     session.close
	end
end

The ‘p’ statement is there because I want to get the
foreign/remote ip and
port
of the socket connection. But getnameinfo(getpeername) does
not work for me.
I
get the following error after a connection is made:
-----8<--------8<-----------------------------------------------
encotoneserver.rb:24:in getnameinfo': getnameinfo: address family for hostname not supported. (SocketError) from encotoneserver.rb:24:inaccept_loop’
from encotoneserver.rb:40
-----8<--------8<-----------------------------------------------
What is the right way to get the foreign ip and port?
