Subject RE: [users@httpd] Passing remote client IP address to backend server and session stickness
Date Tue, 01 Dec 2009 16:29:21 GMT
Hi, Haroon

Where do you see Apache 2.3? I don't see on the office Apache web site.
Also where should I apply:

<%= request.getHeader("X-Forwarded-For") %>

In my Apache reverse proxy server? Thanks.

Ryan

Yes.

What does not work? The X-Forwarded-For header *is* there and that's where 
the automatic part ends. Is your application looking for it? Looking for 
it in what way?

Seems like you are on the java platform. How about deploying a test 
servlet? or a jsp as follows:

<%= request.getHeader("X-Forwarded-For") %>

On an aside, mod_remoteip does all of the address figuring out in apache 
land. AFAIK, it is only bundled with apache 2.3. I see that you are asking 
on another thread about how to include mod_remoteip in apache 2.2 land.

Again, I can only tell you about my experiences. I use apache 2.2.x with 
mod_proxy in a reverse-proxy configruation. For my java app, I use 
xebia-france XForwardedFilter (which is a java port of mod_remoteip).
