IMMUNIO needs to know the real IP address of all incoming requests. The IP address is used to identify possible attackers, and to monitor rate limits for various attack types. By default, the IMMUNIO agent will use the X-Forwarded-For header to get the real client IP address. In most cases this will work well. If your app uses different headers to pass along the client IP address, you may need to configure IMMUNIO so the agent knows where to look. Some common examples of the real IP header are CF-Connecting-IP (Cloudflare) or X-Real-IP (Common with Nginx) If you notice that all attacks on your dashboard are coming from an internal IP address, you need to contact support ([support@immun.io](mailto:support@immun.io)) with the desired header and we will be happy to configure it for your app.
