Subject RE: Re: mod_status: Apache 2.4 incorrect IP (proxy, not useragent_ip) on server-status page
Date Thu, 11 Sep 2014 15:28:05 GMT
However, the API is not going to make this trivial to fix.
ap_get_remote_host is connection-based.  And that is what mod_authz_host
is currently relying upon.
It seems that there needs to be a way for mod_remoteip to override the 
existing behavior, perhaps ap_set_remote_host(), that will cache the
request-based on for the lifetime of the request pool.  In the request
pool cleanup, ap_set_remote_host(c, NULL) would clear that overridden
request-based host, popping the value back to the cached c-> fields.
There is also the issue of the timing of setting the scoreboard record.
All three issues are intertwined.

Yeah, the more I think about it, ap_get_remote_host() is
 currently broken wrt how it handles useragent_ip and client_ip.
 Will likely try to patch this on trunk sometime today...

and instead of it we get conn->client_ip.

believe that it will report a real (useragent) IP instead of a proxy one in server-status
page. useragent_ip is not even available in scoreboard, which is used by mod_status, so it's
not available for mod_status.
