Perlbal::Plugin::XFFExtras - Perlbal plugin that can optionally add an X-Forwarded-Port and/or X-Forwarded-Proto header to reverse proxied requests.
# in perlbal.conf LOAD XFFExtra CREATE POOL web POOL web ADD 10.0.0.1:80 CREATE SERVICE proxy SET role = reverse_proxy SET listen = 0.0.0.0:80 SET pool = web SET plugins = XFFExtras SET send_backend_port = yes SET send_backend_proto = yes ENABLE proxy
This plugin adds optional headers to be sent to backend servers in reverse proxy mode.
This header will contain an integer value indicating the port that the peer connected to. This will correspond to the port number specified on the listen line of the perlbal service that initially handled the connection.
This header will contain a string indicating the protocol the client connected to perlbal via. Currently this will be either 'http' or 'https'.
