We recently deployed CSS on our network that load balances traffic between 2 web servers.

The applicaton owner running on the web servers used to collect stats using Web Trends tool analytic. Since

the migration the tool only see source addresses coming from the CSS.

Is there a way to forward the source address of the client originating the request.

The CSS is setup in the one arm configuration.

First time I see another Gilles posting on this forum :-).


The CSS can't save the client source ip address unfortunately.

So, you need to redesign your setup to get rid of the group command.

ie: inline setup or use policy routing to redirect traffic from server to css when needed.
