Sharepoint 2007 web analytics

Hello, has anyone tried using SharePoint 2007 web analytics but can't get meaningful results because all the IPs passing through the proxy server show one IP? I'm hoping this is a configuration issue...or easy work-around...thanks in advance for your help...

    Hi Eric,



    Question for you...the term proxy server can mean many different things. Are you referring to a BIG-IP, or another device? If we're talking about a BIG-IP, there's a check box in the http profile, called x-forward. This is a fancy way of telling the BIG-IP to preserve the originating IP address. If your proxy server is another device, I'd suggest looking for a similar setting to preserve the client IP. In either case, that may help with the issue at hand.
  • I believe it is Big-IP...they tell me the device is about five years old...has Big-IP been around that long? If so, has that config setting you mentioned been around equally as long? I'm sorry I don't have more info but I literally started this job two days ago; when I heard that they can't track web analytics because all they see is one IP, I thought that doesn't make sense...there must be a solution...thanks for your quick response! I can obtain more detailed info if needed...
  • Thank you very much Helen...I'll research the material you sent me...thank you, thank you, thank you...
