Thread: Proxied wowza getting users ip address from either x-forwarded-for or x-real-ip

    Default Proxied wowza getting users ip address from either x-forwarded-for or x-real-ip

    I have wowza behind a proxy and am looking for the proper header to set such that wowza sees the request coming from a users ip instead of from the ip address of the proxy. I've tried to set the x-real-ip but that fails.. I've also tried x-forwarded-for but that also fails. Can you guys let me know which header value to set so that wowza uses that ip instead of the ip of the proxy?

    Thanks for all your help.

    Jake,

    I think this has come up recently, and that there was not a way to do that.

    Richard,
    Thank you for the confirmation on that. I was hoping I could modify the request to expose it to wowza. Do you know what property of the request wowza uses to determine the ip of the client?

    Thanks,
    Jake

    Jake,

    I think it must be REMOTE_ADDR in the case of HTTP requests at least. I don't think you can proxy rtmp streams.
