I did this

curl sends the proxy protocol header twice.

For HTTPS request:

curl -k -x localhost:8080 --haproxy-protocol https://localhost:8000

After connected to proxy server, it send the header immediately, followed by TLS client hello, but then it send the header again.

For HTTP request:

curl -k -v --proxytunnel -x localhost:8080 --haproxy-protocol http://localhost:8000

After connected to proxy server, it send two consecutive headers immediately.
