so I have a Magento instance running with Varnish in front (port 80) and nginx running in the back on port 8080. Turpentine does all the Magento hole-punching magic.

There are quite a few resources on making the REMOTE_ADDR work so that the Developer Client Restrictions under Admin -> Advanced -> Developer work properly based on my IP. The thing is that the resources are conflicting and I am seeking a best practice way to handle this in 2014.

  • could you point out some of the ressources and tell me what part of their solutions you don't like? Jul 4, 2014 at 14:28
  • @simonthesorcerer it's not about what I don't like - my question is about what someone with experience would recommend as I see multiple solutions and I cannot see which is best practice. Jul 5, 2014 at 10:49
  • Hm, could you post some links to solutions? I haven't come across this issue yet, but looks interesting. Jul 6, 2014 at 16:29
