 * Tests Controller
class TestsController extends AppController

     * Index method
     * @return \Cake\Http\Response|void
    public function index()
        $IP2Proxy = new IP2ProxyCoresController();
        $record = $IP2Proxy->get('');

        echo '<p><strong>IP Address: </strong>' . $record['ipAddress'] . '</p>';
        echo '<p><strong>IP Number: </strong>' . $record['ipNumber'] . '</p>';
        echo '<p><strong>IP Version: </strong>' . $record['ipVersion'] . '</p>';
