enable the forwarded_for option in squid.conf. (usually: forwarded_for on)
Further you should extend your script to scan the X-Forwarded-For variable
in the header.
Check if X-Forwarded-For exists.
if it exist,
  use this ip-address
  use your previous routine to determine the ip-adress of the client.

Hope that helps!
