Description Hank Ibell 2016-08-03 15:59:34 UTC
There was a question on IRC a while ago asking if there was a way to get the remote host's port in the httpd.conf file.

This can be achieved by adding a request variable to the expression parser. The variable REMOTE_PORT was added which returns the port information from the client address.
