Ratelimiting and revealing true client IP


#1

Hi guys,

I have two questions really that tie into each other:

  1. Is it possible to set up custom rate-limiting rules per URL on the free plan somewhere? I couldn’t find it easily on the dashboard.

  2. If the above isn’t possible, is it possible via a page rule to reveal the true client IP for certain routes?

Thanks, Matt.

  1. Under Firewall -> Tools you can add one Rate Limiting rule.
  2. I’m not sure what you mean “Certain Routes.” Your server should be configured to restore Visitor IP addresses.

I attempted the guide for IIS on this but once it was installed, as soon as a site was hit, the related application pool would die. Event view blames the module but has essentially no other info.

Edit: Just realised the guide claims to be for IIS 7. Is there no newer version of the module for IIS 10?

It seems not:
