Display client source address

To aid the diagnosis of a connectivity issues, I need to use a HTTP::respond to display the client’s IP address.

 

 

I’ve tried the code below in an iRule, but the [IP::client_addr] does not get substituted. Do you know how to have the [IP::client_addr] show the client's IP address?

 

 

Thanks.

 

 

HTTP::respond 200 content {

 

 

 

OK

 

 

 

Source address was [IP::client_addr]

 

 

 

}

  • Hi Ger Hackett,

    Try this (It is a little fluffed with extra formatting, but works fine):

     
    when HTTP_RESPONSE {
    HTTP::respond 200 content "
    Client IP Address
    
    
    
    Client Identifier
    Your IP Address is: [IP::client_addr] 
    
    "
    }
