I have a rails application hosted on Heroku that I need to integrate with 3rd party payments provider. The payment provider requires that my application will have a static IP for incoming and outgoing HTTPS requests. I want to deploy a proxy on a Linode VPS so it can relay the information as a proxy. Relaying the request to the service provider seems easy, I just use their IP.

Can I relay requests coming from the service provider to the heroku application? Can I realy the request using a URL ( ?

What is the recommended proxy server to use?
