Hi All

Ok here's my delima.  I have nginx acting as my reverse proxy, and a
backend IIS server assigned with multiple addresses.

nginx server address:

IIS server Addresses:

so everything coming in to works fine and goes to the proper
app server...However I also need the app server to make outbound
connections as

so here's the map.

user request page >  nginx forwards to server > iis processes request
.... this works perfectly.

However my application also needs to look up information from the users
site without the user requesting it (security stuff)...

so i need something like

IIS app goes out to make request from  >  nginx needs to
grab that identity and assign it the address of >  user site
accept request because is a trusted IP.

How can this be accomplished?  Right now all my request are being
rejected but it's passing the information through the default gateway
not through nginx.

All help appreciated..

NginX is a reverse proxy, and it sounds like you might want a forward

Yes, yes..  I need both a forware and reverse proxy.  Is nginx able to
handle both rolls?

If so could you give me an example I can run with?
