    Post Getting wrong client IP address

    I am facing one issue. I need client IP address for keeping logs. I used request.getRemoteAddr() for capturing IP address. But I am getting some other IP address instead of exact one.

    For an example my IP is , but I am getting like this . I checked with network team they are saying its firewall (WAF) address. How can I get actual client IP instead of WAF server address?

    Default Re: Getting wrong client IP address

    good point. Are they accepting you as a client? Then you'll able to get the correct address. If they are giving you some other IP address, it's probably some host similar to the host you are trying to compile. Are you building your own computer using the Java Development Kit? And JRE.
