Hi All,

Profound apologies if this ends up getting sent twice - my mail 
client crashed halfway through last time and I'm unsure if it actually 
got out.


I'm hoping someone can shine some light on a problem I have 

I'm running Squid 2.4 Devel on a Redhat 6.23 box to provide 
proxying services. 

Whilst I want most of the HTTP headers to be available to the 
requested servers, I'd like to make one of them in particular
(HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR) always come out the same, 
preferably the address of the proxy box itself. 

Unfortunately, having it as "unknown" is no good to me.

I know that can turn it on or off using the "forwarded_for" 
configuration option but can't seem to fake it in the same way I 
could a "user_agent".

Any ideas ?
