How to Get Browser Client Real IP within Web Application Behind F5 BIG-IP (Doc ID 1370732.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 26, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 6.1 and later

Goal

The WebLogic web server proxy plug-in or HttpClusterServlet sets the HTTP header "WL-Proxy-Client-IP". When setting "WebLogic plugin Enabled" to true, a web application that runs within a WebLogic Server can get a client IP address by calling request.getRemoteAddr() or request.getHeader("WL-Proxy-Client-IP").

What if a F5 BIG-IP load balancer takes the place of the proxy plug-in or HttpClusterServlet?
