HAProxy Bouncer with loop in HAProxy config

I have attempted to configure the HAProxy Bouncer to work with my configuration but it is not working as expected. I believe the issue is related to the fact that I have a loop in my HAProxy for managing internal vs external connections.

The reason I believe it is causing an issue is because the requests are all coming from localhost.

This is a sanitized copy of my configuration:

    log /dev/log local0
    log /dev/log local1 notice

    stats socket /run/haproxy/admin.sock mode 660 level admin expose-fd listeners

I have tried to figure out how CrowdSec detects the IP but am having no luck.

Here is a write-up about my configuration.

I know the problem is related to the loop in my haproxy setup. I tested by creating a descion for localhost; cscli decisions add -i -t captcha

The next time I attempted to browse to one of my web services it popped up with the captcha. At least I know it is all configured correctly but I need to know how crowdsec is detecting the IP.

Figured it out.

I have it all figured out now and have done a write-up about my configuration.
