SSL Termindation of load balancer w/kubernetes

DigitalOcean Managed Load Balancers

I followed the setup for ssl termination; however, no traffic is getting to the k8s pod.

http ( non-ssl) traffic flows to the k8s pods.
invoking the ssl receives no data and no traffic is getting sent to the pod.

Has anyone found seen this before?
Any ideas to debug.

My DNS is at cloudflare and proxying to the load balancer.
I installed a cert generated from Cloudflare into the load balancer.

If you are using Cloudflare then switch to the development mode so that it can’t proxy the connection.

If it solves the problem then it’s very nice, else try to share some more information like connection working is not after using Origin SSL etc.
