That depends on how you are accessing the server.

REMOTE_ADDR returns the value of the IP address of the machine doing
the request to the web server.  It is not the address of the

I'm assuming by 'fixed ip address' you are refering to a private,
internal ip such as or (or something similar)

If you want the IP of the server, use SERVER_ADDR -- this will report
the IP address that the server accepted the request on.

If both machines are on a private network they will always report
private ip's and not you "real" internet address.
