Dave, maybe you already know, but that variable is "injected" by the CGI
mechanism, is not coming from the OP shell environment.

As Νίκος discovered, when he "cloudfare" (whatever that means) his site,
the REMOTE_HOST envvar contains some (I guess) latin-greek encoded
string, and the remote address is carried by a different envvar...
