[Bug 55348] mod_remoteip updates the "ip" (%a), but "host" (%h) still reflects the connection's ip

--- Comment #9 from William A. Rowe Jr. <[hidden email]> ---
Yes, the auth phase should follow the translation by mod_remoteip, so the auth
require can be based on the trusted x-f-f: header.

The logic is written to get at the hostname, even if it wasn't previously
looked up as part of an auth transaction. (Without cgi, auth etc, it needs to
be entirely possible to fulfill a connection without ever performing a
connection or x-f-f: reverse name lookup.)
