If the firewall in question is performing network address translation
(NAT), then this is really all that can be expected. The IP address visible
to servers on the internet will only be the WAN IP of the router. It is
(thankfully) not possible for a server to see past NAT. As far as your
server is concerned, that WAN IP address is the correct address of the

Assuming those addresses are correct for your reverse proxy, your
server.xml looks fine.

My nginx setting is——

Your Nginx configuration looks fine as well.

The above is a public IP. If the above public IP is that of a firewall in
front of your user (not your reverse proxy), then this is the behavior
expected. You are not going to be able to determine the internal IP of a
user behind a firewall performing NAT. You will only be able to determine
the IP of the machine actually connecting to your reverse proxy, which in
this case would be the WAN port of the router.
