By default, Alert Logic Web Security Manager will insert the IP address of the upstream proxy in the X-Forwarded-For (XFF) header. Some customers have applications that rely on a specific list of XFF headers and do not want Web Security Manager to change the XFF header. In this case, Web Security Manager can be configured to not change the XFF header.
