hi igor,
thanks for your reply.
i tried what you gave, and i still get only the ip address of the
haproxy in my backends,
how to fix?

this my config..
        location / {
            root   /home/mark/work/pop;
            fastcgi_pass backend_pop;
            include /home/mark/work/infrastructure/nginx_fastcgi.conf;

file nginx_fastcgi.conf;
         set  $addr  $remote_addr;

         if ($http_x_forwarded_for ~ "(^|,)\s*(\d+\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+)\s$") {
              set  $addr  $1;

            fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $fastcgi_script_name;
            fastcgi_param PATH_INFO       $fastcgi_script_name;
            fastcgi_param QUERY_STRING    $query_string;
            fastcgi_param CONTENT_TYPE    $content_type;
            fastcgi_param CONTENT_LENGTH  $content_length;
            fastcgi_param REQUEST_METHOD  $request_method;
            #fastcgi_param REMOTE_ADDR     $remote_addr;
            fastcgi_param REMOTE_ADDR     $addr;
            fastcgi_param REMOTE_PORT     $remote_port;
            fastcgi_param SERVER_PROTOCOL $server_protocol;
            fastcgi_param SERVER_ADDR     $server_addr;
            fastcgi_param SERVER_PORT     $server_port;
            fastcgi_param SERVER_NAME     $server_name;
