Rewrite from proxy backend with java applet


#1

I am having a proxy issue that seems to be a java problem…

We have a config that listens on port 10000 https and then proxies https
to the backend on port 443. This works fine until I try and bring up a
java applet which promptly tries to connect to port 443 instead of
10000. Is there a way to rewrite the information the backend is sending
to the java
applet to make it connect to port 10000 instead of 443?

Thanks

If this is caused by redirect returned by backend, then try

http://wiki.codemongers.com/NginxHttpProxyModule#proxy_redirect

proxy_redirect https://backend/ https://frontend:10000/;

or simply

proxy_redirect https://backend/ /;

But the nginx is only listening on port 10000 , not 443, the backend
sends some URL for the java applet that makes it
connect to 443 instead of 10000 … I’m trying to figure out what that
is… Will this intercept something from the backend?

Right now I have it set up like this:
server
{
listen 1.1.1.1:10000;
ssl on;
ssl_certificate
/usr/local/nginx/conf/abc.crt;
ssl_certificate_key
/usr/local/nginx/conf/abc.key;
location /
{
proxy_pass https://10.150.42.112;
proxy_redirect https://10.150.42.112/
https://$http_host/;
proxy_redirect default;
}
}
