Perlbal::Plugin::ForwardedFor - Rename the X-Forwarded-For header in Perlbal
This plugin changes the header Perlbal will use to delcare itself as a proxy.
Usually Perlbal will - perl RFC - add itself to X-Forwarded-For, but this plugins allows you to change that to any header you want, so you could differ Perlbal from other possible proxies the user might have.
In your Perlbal configuration:
LOAD ForwardedFor CREATE SERVICE http_balancer SET role = reverse_proxy SET pool = machines SET plugins = ForwardedFor FORWARDED_FOR = X-Perlbal-Forwarded-For
Register a global hook and check for configuration problems.
Register a service hook to run a callback to rewrite the header.
The function that is called as the callback.
Rewrites the X-Forwarded-For to whatever header name you specified in the configuration file.
