Configuring Nginx OS to perform advanced web proxy function

Hello,

I am certainly a newbie at Nginx. We have a need to implement a web
proxy which performs the following functions:

  1.  Receive HTTPS SOAP transactions from 40 other source servers and 
    

receive those on ports in the range 56000-56100

  1.  The port number will be mapped to a specific destination server 
    

(100 destinations)

  1.  The SSL transaction should be decrypted and the HTTP header 
    

edited to alter the hostname (and remove port specifier)

  1.  Pass on the SOAP transaction via SSL to the destination server 
    

selected by the port number, with NATing for the source IP port.

  1.  Receive the return messages and reverse the process with them 
    

back to the originating source server.

I am told by Nginx support this can be readily done with Nginx. If
anyone can provide pointers, suggestions or other help, it would be
greatly appreciated.

Have you tried looking through any of the documentation or existing
literature to build your config?

https://nginx.org/en/docs/

If you have a specific problem or are running into undocumented issues a
public forum may be able to help, but I don’t think spoon feeding will
help. Sounds like you essentially want a reverse proxy.
https://nginx.org/en/docs/http/ngx_http_proxy_module.html may be a good
place to start.
