Support » Plugin: Contact Form Email » wrong IP shown when using a proxy

  • Resolved Marc Kranat

    It’s very handy seeing the real ip of the submitting browser at the bottom of the emails, but these are replaced with the internal IP of the proxy, in my case Sucuris firewall is the proxy, the suggestions they have here are https://kb.sucuri.net/cloudproxy/Troubleshooting/same-user-ip
    the plugin and mod_praf do not work, I have checked this on both the free and pro versions of the plugin. what do you suggest? or can you fix in the next upgrade.
    The installed I am working with are both nginx and apache, but I suspect it will not matter, as the change needs to be made within the contact-form-to-email plugin.

    Hi,

    At the present moment we don’t have a general solution for the IPs hidden behing a proxy but we will try to implement at least a partial solution for that in the next major update.

    Thank you for your feedback!

    Hi codepeople,

    If you want me to test an implementation I am happy todo so,

    Thanks again,
