How do you preserve the mapping between the origin IP address and the
connection that the web server receives?
For HTTP the easiest solution would be to insert a header with the origin IP
that could then be logged, does the HTTP header addition/modification
functionality of HAProxy support this?
Has this problem been solved for a protocol other than HTTP? In theory you
could have a user-space TCP stack that sends data to the back-end server with
a source address that is the same as that of the origin. Has anyone done
