I am not sure I am looking at the right place here. When I display a list of users and make click able link to open recent student activity,

Here is what I see for myself (logged on as a student and then switched the role to coordinator).

It is a really long list with a bunch of data but there is no IP in it.

The only IP I’ve found is in the manual grading details but this is not the ID of the machine from where the answer was submitted; I believe this is the server IP

Which IP address is shown for submissions in the activity log? Is that what you're looking at?

    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.

    Thank you all,
