ACE 4710 no real ip in header with referer

Hello everybody. I need help with ACE 4710. We use one-arm PAT config to round robin load balance scheme with ssl terminate and trying to insert x-real-ip in all http-headers. But some packets with referer inside arrive with ACE ip in header, no real ip of clients. Any ideas, please?

Thanks!

ACE 4710 no real ip in header with referer

Hi Vladimir,

Did you try using X-forwarded-for instead of X-real-ip?

insert-http X-Forwarded-For header-value "%is.

The above ensures that you see the client IP  in HTTP header and server should have some sort of script enable to catch this for reporting purpose.

I have seen this working flawlessly and would suggest using this and see if  that resolves your problem?

HI Vladimir,

I also see in application parameter that you are using header modify per request as well as persistence rebalance so you should see client IP in request forwarded by ACE. I have not particularly used x-real-ip but i have used x-forwarded-for and it works absolutely fine.

Thank you for reply, Fnu!

Unfortunately, I can't to test your advice in near time

Commonly, does Ace support header "x-real-ip"? Could be another reason?

Cisco Employee

HI Vladimir,

I checked and ACE should support x-real-ip. The header insertion can be anything but the value should be standard and you are using the right one. So it should work.

So coming to the problem, you say that you see some connections with ACE fowarding it's own IP, rather than client, is that correct?

Are those connections part of the same policy to which you have applied insert-http action?

Hi, Fnu.

Yes, i have only one policy in the config and all connections belong it.

Is there difference between insert-http in the policy and active-list? May be it need to replace active-list?

Cisco Employee

ACE 4710 no real ip in header with referer

Hi Vladimir,

For inserting the client IP you don't need an action list and insert-http X-real-IP header-value "%is" is enough.  You can remove the action list that you have configured above and it should still work fine by applying  insert -http xxxx ..under policy map.

I am not sure what exactly is the difference but we use insert-http for this scenario.

Hi, Fnu.

I deleted action-list and finally did test of x-forwared-for. It not work, unfortunately. Some packets was arriving with ip of ace in http-header again. (

Cisco Employee

Hi Vladimir,

The configuration looks fine.  Does this happen to specific connections or is it random? Do you see ACE NAT IP in x-forwarded-for or you don't see anything at all? Can you paste here what you see in HTTP header? Both good and not-good output.

Do you see insert errors increasing under "show stats http"?

Is it happening for HTTP OR HTTPS connections?

Re: ACE 4710 no real ip in header with referer

Hi, Fnu.

It is happening for HTTP and HTTPS.

Now https is disable and doesn't go through ace.

Header insert errors      : 0                  Max parselen errors      : 29       
Static parse errors        : 1216             Resource errors          : 0        
Invalid path errors          : 0                  Bad HTTP version errors  : 0        
Headers rewritten          : 24018818     Header rewrite errors    : 0        

I can't find a dependence.

so, there is output of log nginx below, that connect to ace:

Hi Vladimir,

Can you please try "persistence-rebalance strict" in the http parameter-map and see if it helps ?

Thanks,

Rajesh.

Hi, Rajesh.

Thank you for your reply!

Seems, it works, but only partially. So it is very strange. For serverfarm NGINX-FARM-443 all is good, but serverfarm NGINX-FARM-80 keep to receive packet with ip of ace instead of real ip sometimes.

Cisco Employee

Hi Vladimir,

Everything looks good but it is weird that it is working for HTTPS and not HTTP. I would suggest opening a TAC case and since this is reproducible it could be new bug or something which we are missing.

As far as configuration goes it is fine.

Regards,

Kanwal
