I'm trying to do something like this:
- Clients send HTTP request to HAProxy.
- HAProxy does the TLS stuff to convert the request into https and forward to a server. HTTP to the client.
- The server sends https response to HAProxy, then the response is forwarded as HTTP to client.
Currently, I'm not so sure how to achieve that goal with HAProxy. I tried to create a frontend listen on a custom port and then forward to a backend server. This is my HAProxy configuration:
frontend manager_https bind *:8443 mode tcp log global maxconn 2000 timeout client 50000 default_backend https_be backend https_be timeout connect 5000 timeout server 50000 retries 3 server rtmp-manager 127.0.0.1:12345 check-ssl verify none
Unfortunately, this does not work. When clients send HTTP request, HAProxy also forward the HTTP request to backend server, not HTTPS. How can I change the configuration to make it works as expected?
Another question: Is there any ways to make the offload transparent with client using HAProxy?
I would really appreciate any help!
