Network Proxy

By default, Chproxy extracts the HTTP requests remote address. Chproxy can be configured to run behind another network proxy as well, by including the following configuration:

server:
  proxy:
    enable: true

When Chproxy is run with proxy mode enabled, Chproxy will try to parse the following headers to extract the remote address:

  • X-Forwarded-For
  • X-Real-IP
  • Forwarded

If multiple remote address are found Chproxy assumes the first IP address is the actual remote address. For example in the case where X-Forwarded-For: 10.0.0.1, 10.3.2.1, Chproxy assumes 10.0.0.1 is the correct address.

If you have a custom header that contains the real remote address, it is possible to configure Chproxy to parse that header instead of the common proxy headers:

server:
  proxy:
    enable: true
    header: X-MyCustomHeader

Chproxy assumes the header contains the remote address and doesn't apply any parsing logic to extract the remote address from the header.
