I have nginx setup in front of jetty 6, which is running a GWT application. I am trying to forward the ip address, and all the answers I find on the internet tell me to do this:
proxy_pass http://localhost:8080; proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr; proxy_set_header Host $host; proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
This works just fine, except that jetty's logs don't show the X-Real-IP, they show 127.0.0.1. Also, jetty/GWT has 127.0.0.1 for
getThreadLocalRequest().getRemoteAddr(), although I can access the X-Real-IP to get the correct remote IP.
Any ideas how to get the correct remote ip for the jetty logs and also get
getThreadLocalRequest().getRemoteAddr() to work correctly?
