Needing some serious help :P


#1

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.

All help appreciated…

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,
