#1650: X-Forwarded-For looses the first ip in list
 Reporter:  KlavsKlavsen  |       Type:  defect
   Status:  new           |   Priority:  normal
Milestone:                |  Component:  build
  Version:  4.0.2         |   Severity:  normal
 Keywords:                |
 Just converted varnish 3 setup, to varnish 4, and the X-Forwarded-For
 header consistently gets the first ip removed, when more than 1 ip is on
 the ingoing request.

 then shows up as this on the backend:

 we ran varnish 4, next to the varnish 3 boxes, and the request via them,

 which is because we have this in our varnish 3 vcl_recv:
         if (req.http.x-forwarded-for) {
            set req.http.X-Forwarded-For = req.http.X-Forwarded-For + ", "
 + client.ip;
         } else {
            set req.http.X-Forwarded-For = client.ip;
  (and vcl_recv ends with return(lookup) to bypass x-forwarded-for handling
 in varnish 3).

 I tried reproducing this on test but could not :( - and I had to pull it
 out of production again.
