  Big IP 3600s working perfectly for dozens of servers and load balancing is going well.  But... the only IPs that show up in web server logging belong to the pair of F5s.  I would like the F5 to pass the original IP of our customers for many reasons, namely tracking who is hitting our services.

  The setup is fairly traditional- edge router to firewall to F5 to server.  I have spoken with F5 who pointed me to this setting:
Main | Local Traffic | Virtual Servers | Profiles | Insert X-Forwarded-For

  That setting was disabled; I enabled it, applied it, and no change resulted.

  I've looked high, low, and all over the F5 web site and will have to call them again, unless you have an idea...
