Reverse proxy not working


(liviu) #1

NethServer Version: 7
Module: reverse proxy

Hi everyone,

Is reverse proxy module working? I tried to set up a reverse proxy without luck. In the name field I wrote the name of the domain… let’s say mydomain.com… in target url I wrote initially 127.0.0.1:4567(i just installed nodebb on my server and 4567 is the default port for nodebb), then an external IP (all of them with http:// or https://) but in both situations, trying to access that url, the only page i get is the default nethserver page.

So, is there something I am missing? Are there any other things that need to be set?

UPDATE:
After a few more tests I discovered that the reverse proxy works somehow different than I thought. If I write in the name field let’s say “something” and then in the browser I try to access “http://mydomain.com/something” it’s working.

So the module is working but I have a question: How can I set up a reverse proxy for “http://mydomain.com” ? Just to clear - mydomain.com is not the main domain of my server.

I think you have to do manual configuration:
