I'm troubleshooting performance on a site with firebug, but firebug shows me the remote ip of the proxy instead of the one of the webserver.

Any idea how to adapt this?

    you can look at getting the proxy not to cache the website you are troubleshooting

    You really need a direct connection to the WebServer, or test it onsite.

    Otherwise, if your external, all your going to be doing is hitting the proxy.
