script to manage membership access

script to manage membership access Can't Post

I'm looking for a script that will allow a user to register one time. The script must be able to detect the users IP address and recognize if they have registered before so that they will only be able to register one time. Can anyone help?

Using IP addresses to store membership information should not be used, because IP addresses (on most dialup services) change for each user each time the dial up. While cookies can be used to try to track users to avoid re-logging in, that's easily avoided by the user -- they can simply deny all cookies.

So really there's no way to effectively and permanently store login information to prevent the user from ever needing to log in again.

That being said, there's quite a few "Membership Manager" programs, that enable users to register and store passwords.

Hope this helps!
