Pinned topic X-Forwarded-For
We are trying to capture the source IP for those who are accessing our application behind a proxy server. Is this possible using "X-Forwarded-For" ?

The XFF is configured in F5 Loadbalancer, do we need to do any configuration in IBM WAS V7 Base, I am not using IBM HTTPS. I have basic structure F5Loadbalance --> IBM WAS Base --> Business Application
I am waiting for your prompt response.

If F5 is already configured for XFF then you have modify the IBM HTTP Server config for logging the IP address in access_log. This might give you a clue:
If you are not using IBM HTTP Server and directly sending traffic from F5 to WAS then you will have to programatically interrogate HTTP header and process it.
