How to send Apache httpd IP to the backends instead of the remote client IP using mod_jk?

Solution Unverified - Updated -


The configuration is restricting IP addresses for incoming connections in JBoss with org.apache.catalina.valves.RemoteAddrValve:

<Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.RemoteAddrValve" allow="" ></Valve>

Where the IP is the Apache httpd IP, but it is returning 403 forbidden. It should allow only connections from Apache httpd.
