ACE - x-forwarded-for equivalent for other protocols than HTTP

Hello you guys

Need your help. I have an ACE architecture based on source-nat but I want to have the real source IP info on the destination real server.

For HTTP packets I can set up x-forwarded-for, but is there a way to do the same for other TCP protocols? And, just for the fun of it, UDP also?

Best wishes

ACE - x-forwarded-for equivalent for other protocols than HTTP

Hi,

Sorry but this is not feasible with ACE. It can be controlled at software level itself but I am not aware.

Hi,

it is designed specifically for HTTP. ACE cannot insert the same to any other protocol.

Even if you look at the commands it says :

"insert-http x-forward header-value "%is"

which itself indicate that it is desinged for HTTP.  This is a process of adding a header to HTTP message.

Hope that helps.

Thank you for the reply.

I'm aware that x-forwarded-for is for HTTP only, that was why I was asking for a equivalent: some protocol, script, trick that can manipulate the TCP header in order to help me identify the real source IP address (?)
