Configuring the X-Forwarded-For Header Option

Jan 23, 2015

To provide video caching, the CloudBridge appliance proxies client HTTP connections to video servers. If you need to account for Client IP addresses, enable the X-Forwarded For Header option, which makes the client IP addresses available to an accounting server. When you enable this option, the appliance adds the client IP address to the X-Forwarded-For header of all HTTP requests that the appliance proxies.

To enable the X-Forwarded Header
  1. Navigate to Configuration > Optimization Rules > Video Caching page.
  2. On the Global Settings tab, click the Set Global Prameters link.
  3. From the X-Forwarded Header list, select Enable.
  4. Click OK.
