I already have a reverse proxy setup for HTTP, and im now looking to add ssh and ftp to it.

i assume i can just copy the rules from the http list?

how do i go about forwarding the requests? id like to have ftp on port 1235 and ssh on 1236

You talking about the same SSH as I use? Secure SHell?

AFAIK: nothing to "proxy", no HTTP connections.. impossible.

If you EVER get that working, defo email me or something, cause damn!

This page describes how to reverse proxy FTP:

yeah i wasnt too hopeful when i was reading about ssh before posting the question – Arcath Feb 24 '10 at 16:50
Its an interesting concept though, you can always "Relay".. but not "Proxy" as such. – Grizly Feb 24 '10 at 17:09

Secure Shell does not use HTTP as a transport. You won't be able to "proxy" them with Apache/Squid in the traditional sense.
