I am having difficulties setting up same scenario with SSL.
Is it possible to set up foundry to provide client ip in case of an SSL connection?

thank you

In this particular case it was SSL but SSL was terminated at the Foundry and the back end was straight http. I no longer use the Foundry so cannot test the scenario where SSL is being used all the way through to the back end app or web servers.

Thank you very much for the comment.
I set up everything, ssl-termination working fine but i am not able to rewrite the header somehow. If i do it is not working. I will going to play with it further.
