Customer Question

15.10 bridge ip is seen by going to a server website not the ip of the visitorThis is a xen bridge issue. I have a web server guest. When people click on a web page, the apache logs show the IP of the bridge, not the persons IP who clicked on the page. The bridge should be transparent (and is on my older Debian configuration)I have a pretty strait forward set up, or at least I think I do. Any ideas why my guest web server logs are not seeing the users IP? What would be the typical cause?Thanks all.# ***** how to activate them.

Hi, thank you for contacting My name is***** will do what I can to provide the right answer to your question.Your setup is obvious routing rather than briding/forwarding, or some such. Indications are that you need wds in your configuration. (? unless that's only for a wireless transparent bridge.) But I cannot find specifics. You must be doing something very basic wrong, in building a transparent bridge, or something very subtle... I cannot tell which at this point, to be honest.
