New logging feature in IBM Domino FP8 when using Reverse Proxy - X-Forwarded-For


When using a Reverse Proxy (like Nginx) is in front of a IBM Domino web server you have the issue that the IP address of the client accessing the Domino web server is not forwarded to the log files on the Domino server.

What you get is the IP address of the Reverse Proxy instead...which is not very helpful.



This is normally fixed by the Reverse Proxy server adding a HTTP header field called "X-Forwarded-For" (XFF) which the web server then can log.
Unfortunately the IBM Domino web server will no log the "X-Forwarded-For" field..until FP8 it seems.

A long overdue request from 2010 apparently has been fulfilled in FP8.
My question is just ...how to enable? .. a notes.ini setting ?
anyone knows?

(I presume the "X-Forward" is actually supposed to be X-Forwarded-For (?)
