I have a model users.rb class Users < ActiveRecord::Base def self.setdot(dot) end end In controller I call it: user = Users.new user = Users.setdot("sddf") I get error: undefined local variable or method `request' /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activerecord-2.2.2/lib/active_record/base.rb:1833:in `method_missing' app/models/users.rb:5:in `setdot'

This is precisely what the error message says. Also self.setdot(dot) has no local variable named request, but you are attempting to access a variable or method named request in the line: > if user.user_ip != request.remote_ip Things like the session and request/response objects are not available to the model layer of MVC, as it should be. My suggestion would be to get the "data" that you want from the request and pass that "data" along to the model layer. The layer that is responsible to managing the data of your application. Hope this helps.
