This is a different case. This is when Keycloak can't communicate to the
outside world unless it talks through a web proxy/firewall.
But, yes it would be nice to make it simpler for those that are using a
reverse proxy in front of Keycloak. Not sure we can though. The proxy has
to be configured correctly and it's not always trivial. We also have to
have the configuration option in Keycloak disabled by default as otherwise
it would allow sending fake X-Forwarded-.. headers to fake the remote IP
address. We can certainly improve docs around it though as they are not
straightforward and quite hidden.
