Could discover the real IP through Cloudflare?


As long as you are using DNS entries with :orange: then Cloudflare is the only one who knows the real IP address.

Expanding upon this somewhat, if you truly want to protect the origin IP, be sure there are no gray-cloud records containing the IP of the origin. This could include things such as subdomains for a mail server running on the same system, etc.

Also, if your origin IP has ever been exposed, you should consider it compromised and may want to get a new IP(s) for your origin if possible. There are ways to possibly see the DNS history of a domain which may expose your origin IP, even if it’s now an orange-cloud.
