Website does not load after using X-Forwarded-For HTTP header


I need to see the client real IP to one of my publicly available website, to do that, i enabled the X-Forwarded-For under http profile (client) after that the website did not come up, i tried to use below iRule as well but that one needs to have http profile attached to VIP, so when i attached the http profile the website won't come online, I was wondering if you could help me. one note : the SSL is terminated on the backend server NOT F5.

The error which I am getting


Secure Connection Failed


An error occurred during a connection to PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR


   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.



The iRule


HTTP::header insert X-Forwarded-For [IP::remote_addr]
