This is a good point, but only pertains to HTTP proxying. If you use
AJP, the connector automatically sets the "remote IP address" to that of
the outside IP, not the IP address of your Apache httpd server.

It's still possible that additional proxying is being performed, and you
may still have to use this technique to get the "real" IP address. On
the other hand, you can never be sure which IP address is correct for
the remove client. :(
