This is not exactly your question, but I have a similar problem when I 
have to get the real source address of a forwarded request.

I use this function in this case :

     public static String getRemoteAddr(HttpServletRequest req) {
         String forwardedFor = req.getHeader("X-Forwarded-For");
         if(StringUtils.isNotBlank(forwardedFor)) {
             return forwardedFor.split("\\s*,\\s*", 2)[0]; // liste 
d'adresses de la forme : client, proxy1, proxy2, etc.
         return req.getRemoteAddr();

I guess, but do not have a requyest to your server at hand to check it, 
that there must be a header in your request that you can analyse in a 
similar way to get what you are looking for.
With forwardedFor.split("\\s*,\\s*", 2)[1] , I guess that you would have 
your public address.

Hope this helps.
