Unable to login using Ezproxy


im using ezproxy server to allow IP authenticate user to login. but when i put my site on cloudflare im unable to login using proxy server.

Do cloudflare allow ezproxy server or do i need to change any settings?


This is because every visitor connects to cloudflare (which is a proxy as well) and after that cloudflare connects to your server.
EZProxy sees Clouflare IP adresses. Therefore the Login will fail even if the origin IP is allowed to use your Proxy. Your whitelisting is useless then.

To be able to obtain the visitors origin IP you need to be on an enterprise plan.


with my current plan i’m getting user ip address in “HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR” and ip authentication is working fine on website. but the issue is only with ezproxy users.
