Hello guys,

I have one more issue with the cloud setup that contains of a firewall port forwarding to NGINX (reverse proxy, SSL offloading) and dockered host/ng. The audit log is now showing the docker network's gateway IP only instead of the actual client's IP. A similar thread regarding Abp can be found here: https://github.com/aspnetboilerplate/aspnetboilerplate/issues/5359

Can you please advice how we should solve this for Zero 8.1 ASP.NET CORE & Angular .NET Core 3.0 package?

Thanks!

    hi

    You can forward the real IP in nginx and then rewrite the GetClientIpAddress method of HttpContextClientInfoProvider to get the info in the request header.

    Hi,

    thanks for the quick reply, unfortunately I can't find that file or GetClientIpAddress by global search in the whole project (Angular / .net core, separate projects). Can you give me a hint where to look at?
