Remote_addr will return my web server ip address

P: n/a
I have a web server with a firewall.
The problem is that when i use request.servervariables("remote_addr")
the ip i get is my server's ip.
Is there any other way to retrieve my visitor's ip?

Looks like the firewall cought the visitor's request and then request's
this page from the web server-and send it back to the visitor.(but still i
am not sure if this is what happens)

If i have to reconfigure my firewall can you give me some info on how to do
this and if this is secure!!

Is this the right newsgroup for this question?

Thanks in advance!!

I found this article by typing firewall and remote_addr into the search box
at www.aspfaq.com:
