We are using the corel web server OCX behind an apache proxy on the same machine.

Everything works fine except the IP Address showing on the web server is the IP address of the proxy server ( instead of the original/real IP address of the client.

Is there a proxy server out there I can use with the Corel Web Server OCX so that I can retrieve the original/real Ip address of the client?

I tried NGINX and even set the directives :

      proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
      proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;

But it doesn't work. 

I looked at the corel web server access log and it only contains the basic access log like:

      localhost - - [17/Sep/2012:17:07:20 -0800] "POST /openform HTTP/1.1" 200 29217 - - [17/Sep/2012:16:57:29 -0800] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 200 4583

The corel Web Server log does not contain the real IP or X-Forwarded For data.

Please help.  I need to retrieve the real IP address from my Paradox Web Application.  I can do this if I remove the proxy server but I need the proxy server for security and SSL.

Thanks in advance.
