Proxy Protocol support

If you connect load balancers to your AxoSyslog application, AxoSyslog identifies every connection that is connected to the load balancers identically by default, regardless of the source IP or the source protocol. Essentially, the load balancer masks the source IP unless you enable Proxy Protocol support for your proxy TLS transport() to inject information about the original connection into the forwarded TCP session.
