We are attempting to setup a big ip f5 and need outbound internet traffic to flow through proxy servers. Is that possible?

I think that's two different concepts. You're talking about setting up a reverse proxy, but then you're asking how to set up a forward proxy. If you're talking about HTTP replies in responses to requests that clients sent, those will already be flowing through the reverse proxy, since the reverse proxy opens a TCP session to the back-end server. What other traffic types do you need to go through the proxy? – Mike Nov 1 '13 at 23:21
no I need for it to literally send all traffic(software updates/licensing) to an existing internet proxy. – Chris-AZ Nov 1 '13 at 23:44

Yes. You will need to create a pool with the proxy server as your pool member and then create a virtual server for with your proxy server pool as the designated pool for this virtual server.
