  • forwarded for
  • client IP
  • client host
  • client protocol
  • client port


Install this plugin.


  1. Open your October back-end administration area and open Settings > Trusted Proxies.
  2. Enter the header items that you want to trust. See the plugin Documentation for detail on how to configure for common environments.
