Hi there, With the default "amphora" driver, no. It is a full-proxy style load balancer.

However we provide a few ways you can pass the original client IP address through to the backend member servers. You can enable HTTP header insertion and enable the X-Forwarded-For option. We also support the "PROXY" protocol which will insert information about the client into the TCP stream.

Also note, Octavia does not require you to use a floating IP. You can use public (external) networks directly for your VIP unless the operator has disabled it.
