Subject Re: Patch to override request.getRemoteAddr if behind a reverse proxy
Date Sat, 15 Jul 2006 10:09:23 GMT
Then why was proxyPort and proxyName not done in a Valve or Filter? I
assumed that I should be following the same route that other, similar
requirements followed.

With regards to a Filter, what if I have 30 webapps, and each one needs
the correct request.getRemoteAddr? Could one map a filter globally over
all webapps in the same Tomcat?

Regards
Johan
