Subject IP logging problem
Date Sun, 10 Mar 2002 08:49:04 GMT
Help!  I'm definitely an Apache novice and I would 
vastly appreciate any help someone can give me.  

I'm running Apache 1.3.22 on a Mac OS X Server.  It 
seems that Apache is logging my IP address 
instead of the client's IP address.  I looked in the 
config file and my domain is set up as a virtual host, 
so I'm wondering if that is the problem.  I originally 
set it up using Apple's Mac OS X Server Admin 
application.  But, that app is unfortunately very limited 
in its scope.  

I have found that I now have a script kiddie trying to 
break into my machine, although it's obviously an 
attempt to break IIS, since the script is attempting to 
access .exe files and win32 directories (glad I'm not 
on IIS).  Although this isn't really causing a problem 
for me, I'd still love to pass the IP of the perpetrator 
onto my ISP.

Some potentially pertinent information is that I'm on 
a cable modem with a  dynamic IP which doesn't 
resolve to any specific domain name.  I haven't 
monkeyed with the logging, it's a standard logging 
set-up ("%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b").

I'm sure this is something very basic that anyone 
who administers Apache should know and has 
probably been covered by this forum many times in 
the past.  I appreciate any illumination anyone can 
give me.
