Summary0000594: Wrong remote IP address on password reset e-mail
DescriptionWhen requesting a password reset, an e-mail is sent with a link to reset your password. In this e-mail, you are also given the remote IP address of who requested the reset. Instead of my public IP address, I get this:

Username: netsurf
Remote IP address:

Presumably, this is the local gateway the server is behind as is reserved for private use.
TagsNo tags attached.

quite right - the bug tracker is behind a SSL proxy which hides the IP of origin. Maybe if we get to deploying x509 authentication on the bug tracker bug 0000678 this problem will also be solved.

No, that's not plausible. Adding certificate-based authentication will not change the output of the IP of origin (and may cause other issues, such as the continual need to patch bug-tracker software, as it is externally sourced...), and a password reset would not be necessary if one could login with a certificate.

The bug tracking software could possible be fixed if the SSL proxy sets a X-Forwarded-For HTTP header. I don't know whether this is the case and whether mantis supports this (yet).

I will have a look at whether it is possible to fix this with the current infrastructure.

the current password reset mechanisms work differently. There is no email with an IP address anymore.
