Access the IP of Real User
Generally, a website access request does not simply reach the website’s origin server from the user’s browser (visitor’s browser), but passes through the deployed CDN proxy server. In this case, after layers of acceleration or reseller’s forwarding of the access request, the origin server is unable to get the real client IP initiating a request.
Enable the feature to Access the IP of Real User to allow the user to obtain the real IP address of the access source or IP address of client while using CDN for acceleration.
