Quick Question on Cookies vs. IP Number:

They appear to be easy to set (well at least in PHP), hence quite
easily to get around (The user of your Site simply deletes the
Cookie on his Hard Drive...)  In Konqueror you are actually
given the option of rejecting cookies...  Using
getenv($REMOTE_ADDR) to retrieve someones IP number
isn't too reliable either in the case that someone is using
Dial Up...  I just want to get ideas from other PHP Coders as
to how they secure their Sites and actually keep an accurate
record as to who and how many people visit  your sites..
coz even a combination of Cookies and IP would be easily

Some Ideas if you may folks...
