such restrictions really don't belong to the proxy but on the backend 
server, running a reverse proxy without translate source ip addresses is 
in general unwise and so if you setup is done right you make your 
restrictions on the backend server as if there would be no proxy at all 
(directly on the backend server or inside the application sicne 
REMOTE_ADDR for scripts is also transprant translated)

or in other words: your backend config and application should not need 
to be aware that there is a proxy at all in front

for leagy servers running apache in outdated versions there is a 
"mod_rafp" 3rd party module available
