Nginx as Proxy and IP forwarding

Hi All,

I'm in a situation where we have a 3rd party canned app (CF and Java on IIS) that we want to put behind an nginx proxy server.  Unfortunately, we have no control over the app and or web server so we can not tell it to use X-Forwarded-For when doing logging, ip restrictions, etc.  Is there anything I can do to make nginx pass the actual client IP without using alternative headers?
