Hi,
      My flex application is running on  http://www.mydomain.com. When we hit this URL the proxy will internally redirect to my flex application and will open myPage.html. I am using http service calls in my flex app. I will be calling java application with URL's http://subdomain.mydomain.com/xxx.action where the proxy internally redirects the http://subdomain.mydomain.com to our java application which is developed in struts 2.0.

Now my problem is when i try to track the ip address of the user with code servletRequest.getRemoteAddr() the ip addres i am getting is 127.0.0.1 instead of user ip addres. But i need the user ip address. Can any one help me out how to solve this

a proxy responds itself to the user request, while in its place, starts a new request to the proxied applications.

What I mean? If your proxy is working correctly, you always will se the requests coming from it.
You can still get the original client ip address in a header if you modify your proxy to send it, and the receiving application to read the original ip address from the header if present:
