My set up is a domain name with DO handling DNS, DO load balancer and droplets running nginx. How do I get real ip from the traffic from the load balancer and the traffic directly to my droplet?

Added this to nginx.conf
And now I see the correct addresses :D
But will this also reveal the requests directly to my droplet? I need both.
If traffic comes to your Droplet through a DigitalOcean load balancer, the
X-Forwarded-ForHTTP header will be set, revealing the true origin of the request.
You can find out more in our Load Balancer docs: https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/networking/load-balancers/#http
Hope that helps! - Matt.
