Sticky connections and X-Forwarded-For



  • Hi guys,

    I'd like to know if the "Use sticky connections" parameter is able to use the IP provided in the X-Forwarded-For header added by squid instead of the IP source address (the squid/pfsense itself)

    For info, I'm currently using pfsense 2.2.1 nanobsd i386

    Thanks !

    No. Sticky relies on pf state/session tracking, it does not inspect the contents of packets, and likely has no bearing on squid whatsoever.

    If you need balancing help with squid, check the Cache/Proxy subforum under Packages.
