Subject RE: [users@httpd] HOST ADDRESS of a client host behind transparent proxy?
Date Wed, 31 Mar 2004 10:30:38 GMT
Yeah, you got my question perfectly.

And I also know and checked it that I do not find the REMOTE_ADDR of the
visitor.

But I thought if there is anything beyond my knowledge. BTW, can I force
to identify or how do I know that it's behind a proxy/transparent proxy?


Anyway, thank you for your reply. Specially for your explanation of the
issue.
