Hello All,


I am trying to configure reverse proxy on my nginx server. This server
need to sit in the DMZ zone. Receive the web request and forward it to a
backend web server.

I have tried the configuration mentioned here.


Note: - Currently No firewall in place so no port restriction.


Scenario - 

The frontend server URL is  

Backend Web Server URL is


Challenges - 

*         When the redirect happens the frontend URL should not change.
It should remain the same appending the new page details to the frontend
server URL. 

*         Need https configured from Client to frontend 

*         https/http from frontend to backend web server.


Can you please guide me with the configuration. Or let me know if you
need any further information
