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: 10.100.50.7 IIS server Addresses: 10.100.50.1 10.100.50.2 10.100.50.3 so everything coming in to 10.100.50.7 works fine and goes to the proper app server...However I also need the app server to make outbound connections as 10.100.50.7. 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 10.100.50.3 > nginx needs to grab that identity and assign it the address of 10.100.50.7 > user site accept request because 10.100.50.7 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.

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

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? Thanks, Sham
