Cloudflare does not propagate users IP address to origin system


#1

As the subject says, Cloudflare does not propagate users IP address to origin system.
Is there a way to configure this ? Our forum needs original IP address not CloudFlare one.

Your raw logs will show the IP addresses of Cloudflare’s proxy servers.

Cloudflare sends a couple of headers that identify the origin IP of your visitors:
CF-Connecting-IP
X-Forwarded-For

Some forums have a built-in mechanism for restoring visitor IP address using a “Proxy” setting.

Here are Cloudflare’s support documents on the subject:
