Passing the scheme through SSL termination on the Balancer

When you are terminating SSL at the Balancer you often need your webservers to know if it was an HTTPS request or not. This is done by using the Request Add field in Header Modification on your SSL group. You can add a line like this:

X-Forwarded-Proto:\ SSL

This would then insert that header into requests on the SSL group, letting you know they came in via HTTPS.
