The true IP address of a client machine is often only available via a http header property like X-Forwarded-For, X-Real-IP, X-Client-IP etc.
How can the on-premise CA AXA Collector be configured to process an http header for the client IP?
CA AXA on-premise
The file .../AxC/conf/ has property "client.ip.http.headers" which can be enabled and a comma separated list of headers to check can be added.
Comments from that file:
# list of custom headers where client IP may be present. This list should be sorted by
# priority and DxC will pick up client IP from first header found in the http request.

NOTEThis functionality is only fully available with reporting in the newly released CA AXA 17.3.2
