To add the "X-Forwarded-For" header on a load balancer Application Delivery Controller (ADC), you will need to access the ADC's configuration settings. The exact steps to add the header may vary depending on the specific ADC software or platform you are using. However, here is a general guide to help you locate where to add the "X-Forwarded-For" header:

Log in to the administration interface or management console of your ADC.
Navigate to the section or menu related to virtual servers, listeners, or HTTP profiles.
Locate the specific virtual server or listener where you want to add the "X-Forwarded-For" header.
Edit the settings for the virtual server or listener.
Look for an option that allows you to modify or configure HTTP headers or request/response settings.
Within the HTTP header settings, find the option to add custom headers or modify existing headers.
Add a new header with the name "X-Forwarded-For" (without quotes) and set its value to the appropriate client IP address or the desired value.
Save the changes to apply the new header configuration.
Test the load balancer to ensure that the "X-Forwarded-For" header is being added correctly.
Please note that the specific terminology, menu structure, and options may differ depending on the ADC software or platform you are using. It is recommended to refer to the documentation or user guide provided by the ADC vendor for detailed instructions on how to add custom headers like "X-Forwarded-For" on your specific ADC model or software version.
