Get Client IP for web requests through proxy
For IIS sessions, if a web request comes from the IP address of a proxy the real client IP isn't see. To see the real internet address of the user instead of the proxy address as client address follow the next steps.
Warning: the proxy must use the X-Forwarded-For http header to keep the real client address (X-Forwarded-For - HTTP | MDN (mozilla.org))
- Determine the IP address of the proxy.
Add the proxy IP address in the advanced setting of UserLock (F7) IisProxyList.
- Ensure the latest HttpModule is deployed, and that the IIS MFA is also upgraded.
