reading Source IP address from HTTP headers through for example X-Forwarded-For

Currently there is a dynamic routing feature to read incoming source IP address and base the routing based on this value. However many organizations dont support having source IP address hitting the SSP engine servers. Usually the incoming IP address which shows at engine is the Load balancer one. Is there a future possibility of reading Source IP address from HTTP headers in SSP? example the X-Forwarded-For

How will this idea be used?

This feature will give us the ability to comply with our Network standards within the organization but still give the possibility to explore the feature of dynamic routing which could be very beneficial for us as we have many EDI systems lying around to be migrated.

    We have a number of clients in MEA using web services and similar http traffic from external, and they would like to be able to see the original source IP, and not the F5/load balancer IP. Ideally they would want the source IP to be passed all the way to B2Bi for internal reporting/checking etc.

    Hopefully our clients can benefit from the proposed change above as the source IP should be available in the header.
