Configure the PingDirectoryProxy Server to get traffic through a load balancer and to record the actual client's IP address.
- To record the actual client's IP address to the trace log, enable X-Forwarded-* handling in both the intermediate HTTP server and the PingDirectoryProxy Server.
Edit the appropriate connection handler object, HTTPS or HTTP, and set
use-forwarded-headers to true.
When use-forwarded-headers is set to true, the server uses the client IP address and port information in the X-Forwarded-* headers instead of the address and port of the entity that's sending the request, the load balancer. This client address information shows up in logs, such as in the from field of the HTTP REQUEST and HTTP RESPONSE messages.
- On the load balancer, configure settings to provide the X-Forwarded-* information, such as X-Forwarded-Host:.
