not getting remote address while using proxy in socket io


not getting remote address while using proxy in socket io  using -'node.js,proxy,socket.io'

In my socket.io code,

socket.sockets.on('connection', function(client){
    var ip = client.handshake.address.address;
    ..
}


ip always returns 127.0.0.1 and this is because the server sits behind a proxy.
How do I get remote address properly ?      

Edit: I am using http-proxy

yes, this is working for me.

client.handshake.headers['x-forwarded-for'] || client.handshake.address.address;

I am properly getting the remote IP address and not 127.0.0.1
