Fetch real IP using proxy pass

I am attempting to fetch the real IP of the visitor on a Flask application that I am serving using Nginx server blocks on Ubuntu, but I get the same IP with all the visitors (my droplet’s IP). How do I fix this?

This is my current server config for my application.

server {
    listen 80;

    location / {

@sudeep135 You need to setup the x-forwarded-for header, then read this header in your flask app to get the client’s real ip address. Check out this tutorial for more info.

Hope this helps.
