I can't use nodejs/expressjs to get the client IP address behind a Digital Ocean Loadbalancer when using "req.headers['x-forwarded-for'];".
I cannot use nodejs with expressjs to get the client IP address (enabled with ssl) behind a Digital Ocean Loadbalancer when using “req.headers[‘x-forwarded-for’];”.
To manage the droplet I use “dokku” witch installs “nginx”.
How can I get the real client IP address behind a Digital Ocean Loadbalancer with a SSL connection?
Please help me.
