Discussion Tautulli showing docker network IP addresses instead of actual client IP address

Remote - Dedicated Server
I have PG setup in the standard way but am using the cloudflare CDN. something I have noticed since making this change a few months back is that now Tautulli shows for the IP address of all playback entries on the history page. the IP corresponds to the Treafik proxy.

Is anyone else seeing something similar? I occasionally get an actual IP address in the report, but the vast majority are always this same IP address.

Any idea how to fix this so I can see the actual IP addresses of clients playing content on my system?

Update: It seems like this is an issue with how Plex handles X-Forwarded-For and X-Real-IP headers for clients that are ipv6.

Interesting thread here https://forums.plex.tv/t/plex-api-sessions-status-not-honoring-x-forwarded-for-x-real-ip-with-ipv6-clients/175705/29

As a temporary workaround I disabled ipv6 in cloudflare per the thread above. A CURL command like the following will do this if you have ipv6 enabled. remember to substitute your email and API information where needed.

curl -X PATCH "https://api.cloudflare.com/client/v4/zones/023e105f4ecef8ad9ca31a8372d0c353/settings/ipv6" \
     -H "X-Auth-Email: [email protected]" \
     -H "X-Auth-Key: c2547eb745079dac9320b638f5e225cf483cc5cfdda41" \
     -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
     --data '{"value":"off"}'
I will run with ipv6 turned off at cloudflare for a while to see if this workaround really does resolve this issue.
