I have something what relies on a detected IP address (gethostbyaddr() =
something), see http://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1360
Auto-login / Auto-account-creation by hostname for intranet MediaWikis .
There is no uploaded patch (yet), but it is easy.
Please can you check, if this can be useful for you ?
