No X-Forwarded-For come from proxied DNS reuest

I am using Traefik on GCP, and trying to whitelist IPs based on source IP

the issue is I don’t receive a X-Forwarded-For header in the request comming from CloudFlare

I’m going to say it’s probably there…but if by some chance it’s not, try CF-Connecting-IP

well it is not, and i need the X-Forwarded-For to use the white list feature of Traefik …
