Visitor IP Address (Historical Information Required

Visitor IP Address (Historical Information Required)

I have a query (rather important for our business) where I require the true ip of the visitor external IP address for access to the (particularly when downloading files). It’s only recently been made aware that the IP address logged within our web server system(s) are only obtaining the Cloudflare IP address rather than the ‘real’ visitor IP address. While I’m now aware that we can make changes to obtain the ‘real’ visitor IP address, I’d like to know if it’s possible to obtain historical ‘real’ IP addresses from previous connections? Are these logged in Cloudflare and can be accessed in any way?

Hi @user5013,

Cloudflare only has full logging available to Enterprise users, not the regular self-serve plans.
