Request Header Parser Microservice

Hello everybody.I’am working on the “Request Header Parser Microservice” backend project. When I deploy this from cloud 9, it works fine. However when I deploy this to Heroku and launch the Heroku hosted app, the IP address is preceded by “::ffff”. The complete text looks like "“ip_address”: “::ffff:10.97.160.245”. Has anyone faced this issue? Any tips. Thanks

That’s the IPv6 address. If you want to separate the v4 and v6 addresses, you’ll have to account for that with the understanding that there isn’t always a v6 address present.
