Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am not too familiar with Squid or IPTABLES, I have an idea that this will work but I cannot find a good example via Google. In a nutshell, I am trying to mimic an SSL Accelerator. Like a Sonicwall... but without spending thousands of dollars on it.

I want setup a secure external connection over HTTPS and forward that connect as HTTP to an internal IP. I will explain in the shortest/easiest fashion possible.

CLIENT CONNECTS <--> HTTPS ENCRYPTS EXTERNAL CONNECTION (PORT 443) on external IP 123.456.789.012 <--> DATA IS FORWARDED (PORT 8080) TO INTERNAL IP 10.11.12.13.

Any help, I swear I am not being lazy, just really confused.

P.S. This is on a centOS box, I am a FreeBSD guy, so that might be part of my struggle (the commands are a little different here).

You might want to look into either of nginx, Apache with mod_proxy or pound. Most prefer nginx, bit pound is also à good choice.
