Create HTTP header with source IP of ProxyProtocol?

Traefik EntryPoints support ProxyProtocol which enables a load balancer to forward (encrypted) connections and still let Traefik know the original originating IP.


Is there a way for Traefik to add the load balancers IP (the direct source of the incoming ProxyProtocol connection) to the HTTP headers, to get something like x-forwarded-proxy: We would like to see if all load balancers are actually working.

Just linking the issue you opened as it was accepted as a valid proposal to help other people track it:
