Is it possible to set up IIS as a forward proxy for HTTPS requests?
My use case is this: I have some process running locally on the IIS machine which is able to make HTTP calls, but not HTTPS calls. I would like to set up IIS so that I can send a HTTP request to it (on localhost) and IIS would then forward the request as a HTTPS request to the real URL (using some sort of mapping based on the original URL).
myprogram on server1 <-> http <-> IIS on server1 <-> https <-> server2
Is this possible? This link (http://www.iis.net/learn/extensions/configuring-application-request-routing-(arr)/creating-a-forward-proxy-using-application-request-routing) says "Note that ARR processes only HTTP traffic, not other protocols. ARR does not support the HTTP CONNECT verb, and as a result, does not support forwarding HTTPS traffic." but maybe there are other ways of achieving this on IIS?
