PROXY Protocol Support for Load Balancers
DigitalOcean Load Balancers now support using PROXY Protocol to pass information like origin IP addresses and port numbers from connecting client requests along to the backend service. This can be configured using the API by setting the new
enable_proxy_protocol attribute to
true when creating a new Load Balancer or updating an existing one.
See here for more information about using PROXY Protocol with DigitalOcean Load Balancers.
