I'm using DD-WRT to route website traffic from my router to a webserver.

Basically, the setup goes NS -> localip -> my router -> external webserver.

However, all the info on the external server is comming from localip. I want it to presist the info from the original request.

Is there a way to do this with DD-WRT? or possibly even on the webserver? The web server is a Windows 2k8r2 server.

HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR seems like it's what i want to set. The issue is, the site that it is hitting is getting all the same IP addresses, all from the router that fowarded it. – Mike Feb 16 '11 at 23:54
