Hello !

I'm new to Nginx.

I installed Nginx (on Gentoo) instead of Apache behind a Cisco

My problem is that the directive $http_x_forwarded_for always write
local IP of the LoadBalancer instead of Real IP.

But I have the good IP in the header HTTP_X_FORWARD.

I've tried lot of configurations but no one is good...

Do you have any idea ?

Thanks by advance,
