Get Real IP's in Things like netstat

When I try and use tools like netstat on my server all I see are the cloudflare ips, is there a way to get the real ip’s on the server tools like that?

The short answer is no.

Those are the real IPs in that context. When you use netstat you are viewing the connections to your server. Your vistors never connect to your server. They connect to Cloudflare. Cloudflare then connects to your server. That leaves Cloudflare IPs as the only thing that netstat can show you.


A [sub]domain on your server which is not proxied will resolve to the server’s real address - but it won’t get Cloudflare protection.

Gotcha. That makes sense. Thanks!
