    Is there a way to check the IP address of a machine that student submitted the answer from?
    In the grade details I can see the host name and the IP address, which is not the user IP address but the IP address of the LON-CAPA server.
    Being able to track the student IP address would be very helpful to prevent cheating. Some students these days simply allow paid "ghosts" to login and solve the problems for them.
