    Thanks Mikkel,

    We’ll have a fix for this out soon. The issue is that there are a wide variety of web server configurations out there and we’ve tried to make Wordfence compatible with all of them – including front-end proxies, nginx, firewalls, etc.

    To fix this we’re probably going to have to ask the user to specify which HTTP header we should use to get the IP address. Most users don’t even know what an HTTP header is, so we’re trying to figure out how to make this user-friendly and secure.

    We’ll have a fix out soon.

    Regards,

    Mark.
