Hello Lucien,

Hello,

Trunk branch : mod_remoteip.xml file, <name>RemoteIPProxyProtocolExceptions</name> directive :

"<usage>
     <p>The <directive>RemoteIPProxyProtocol</directive> directive enables or"

must probably be replaced by :

"<usage>
     <p>The <directive>RemoteIPProxyProtocolExceptions</directive> directive enables or"


I checked the last pending doc changes and the complete diff is:

+    <p>The <code class="directive">RemoteIPProxyProtocol</code> directive enables or
+    disables the reading and handling of the PROXY protocol connection header.
+    Sometimes it is desirable to require clients to provide the PROXY header, but
+    permit other clients to connect without it. This directive allows a server
+    administrator to configure a single host or CIDR range of hosts that may do
+    so. This is generally useful for monitoring and administrative traffic to a
+    virtual host direct to the server behind the upstream load balancer.</p>
+
 
It may need to be explained a bit better but IIUC the paragraph is saying that since RemoteIPProxyProtocol is a on/off switch, RemoteIPProxyProtocolExceptions can be used to fine tune exceptions.


Same file : I'm not quite sure to understand the phrase "This is generally useful for monitoring and administrative
    traffic to a virtual host direct to the server behind the upstream load
    balancer."

Definitely not clear, need a bit of rework. Do you have something in mind to fix it?
