    vCenter browser login source address

    letumar Lurker

      Could you kindly please help me with this.

       

      I am trying to receive an email notification when a vCenter 6.5 user logged in using administrator@vsphere.local.

       

      I need to receive a source IP address used by a client to log in.

       

      The notifications works. However, with a web-browser client, the source IP address is always revealed as 127.0.0.1.

       

      If I logged in with administrator@vsphere.local using a VMWARE-client or POWERCLI, I receive an email with the correct IP address which is used by my PC.

       

      Why the clients IP address is revealed as 127.0.0.1 for when a user logged on using a web-browser?
