Solution #00004611



Applies to all Barracuda Web Application Firewalls.



To log the actual client IP instead of the VIP of the Barracuda Web Application Firewall in the IIS logs, install the x-forwarded-for DLL on the IIS server.  By default, the Web Application Firewall forwards the client IP address as the header X-Forwarded-For.

  1. Extract the X-Forwarded-For.dll file into a folder on the Web Server.
  2. Open Internet Services Manager and go to the Properties section of the Website.
  3. In the ISAPI filter tab, add the X-Forwarded-For.dll file.
  4. Restart the WWW service from Administrative Tools > Services.
