I've been a bit frustrated by this too, but the IP address reported will be
of the last proxyper that touched the data.

One possible way to work around this is to have the proxyper behind the
firewall send it's log's to your other machine, and to ignore log entries
from that proxyper.  It's a bit of a hack, but it's the only thing I've
come up with yet.
