Added Cloudflare.com service to a Windows/IIS box today and I wanted to make sure I was capturing the original ip address since Cloudflare works as a reverse proxy to cache and distribute data across their CDN. Their instructions were pretty good, but a couple notes to make it easier:
- On step 3, you cannot “enable” the advanced logging unless you have the host stopped.
- You cannot directly edit the default logging rules without getting the error: “The request is not supported. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070032)”. I simply made a copy of the default rules (in right action options). Then you can edit away.
