Client IP Address Does Not Pass To Mod_Access Through Web Cache (Doc ID 263943.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 17, 2017

Applies to:

Web Cache - Version 1.0.2.1 to 11.1.1.6.0 [Release 9iAS to Oracle11g]
Oracle HTTP Server - Version 1.0.2 to 11.1.1.6.0 [Release 9iAS to Oracle11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Using Oracle Web Cache (WC) as front end to the Oracle HTTP Server, (OHS), the access_log entries show the address of the Oracle Web Cache server, (or the Server's IP), not the end user's client IP address. The client IP address does show up in the Web Cache access_log, but doesn't get passed through to OHS. Therefore, Allow/Deny directives in httpd.conf will not work.
