Subject [users@httpd] mod_proxy: is it possible to remove/unset X-Forwarded-For header
Date Tue, 22 Jan 2008 01:27:25 GMT
I'm using mod_proxy to proxy requests to an application which does not
respond properly when mod_proxy adds the X-Forwarded-For header.  I'd
like to remove the header from the proxied request, but my attempts to
do so using mod_headers have failed.  This might indicate that the
addition of the X-Forwarded-For header by mod_proxy occurs after any
operations on the proxied request by mod_headers.  The problem occurs in
both Apache 2.2.0 and 2.2.8.
Can anyone suggest an alternative way to remove the X-Forwarded-For
