Return IP address of connecting client

Hi All,

I am releatively new to HAProxy but trying to do some new things.

I am looking for a way to use the monitor-uri or another way which I can do a URL check from the remote client to the server, and have the IP address of the client returned. Similar to running “curl” or using whatismyip.

Monitor-URI setup as below
monitor-uri /status

Run command
curl THE URL Shortener - Free, Custom URLs

HTTP/1.0 200 OK
Cache-Control: no-cache
Connection: close
Content-Type: text/html

I would like the hosting server returning the 200 response to include the public address of the client the curl was run from.

Any way to achieve this would be appreciated.
