• [REPOST] - Synchronet Web Service Question

    From WitNik@1:103/705 to All on Sun Jul 4 12:52:35 2021
    Apologies for reposting this, but I had mistakenly posted it in DOVE's programming sub.

    Here's my original message:

    I've recently configured a reverse http/https proxy in front of my SBBS. My setup is working well; however, SBBS is currently logging all web traffic (IP addresses) as coming from the reverse proxy vs. the Internet-based clients.

    Is there a way to cause SBBS to "trust" the proxy address and read the standard X-Forwarded-For headers provided by the proxy to log external client IPs?

    I had looked in the docs/wiki and was unable to find anything relevant.

    Thanks in advance,

    -WitNik

    There's no built-in support for that, no. At least, not yet.

    Thanks for the reply and details. Is this something you might be willing to accept as a feature request? I'm asking for a friend. =)
