and this is eaxctly why I said you must configure apache to accept
X-Forwarder-For header from squid, so apache knows which real IP connects
from the outside.  And I said the proper module is mod_remoteip or something

However, yout anti-ddos software should connect to squid, not to apache. Or,
your squid server might be useless in that setup.
