I should preface this with stating that I know basically nothing about proxies (despite having written a toy caching proxy a while back :)).
I have a small cluster of servers running behind a firewall. One of these servers ("server0") can be connected to via http on port 8080, the rest are blocked off. I would like to set up a proxy on server0 so that it forwards requests to server1, server2, etc.
I would also like to configure my client machines (all running Ubuntu) to use the proxy on server0:8080 , but only for urls that hit server* , not for the rest of the traffic. So far I've only been able to find instructions for setting up a proxy for all traffic, not just that which matches some regex.
Is this possible? Any hints / links / etc?
Also recommendations on the appropriate choice of proxy software would be great.
