im looking for a proxy which supports a massive load (like nginx or haproxy) and can handle websockets and ssl. i know only nginx which does not support websockets and haproxy which doesnt support ssl offloading.

I have been putting Apache httpd in front of haproxy to handle the SSL traffic. Apache runs on port 443 and handles the SSL traffic on the front end and then uses the proxy module to forward the traffic to a haproxy instance that is listening to a high port number on 127.0.0.1. haproxy then forwards the traffic to the backend servers.
