I have a question about forwarding HTTPS connections. I was wondering
whether or not SSL Proxies exist (Apache?) that allow forwarding HTTPS
connections to a different server?
The problem is that our webserver (on which our shop system resides)
runs on a ip address different to which our hostname resolves.
Here an example which describes our setup and makes the above said
www.our-shop.de resolves to 18.104.22.168
Our webserver runs on 22.214.171.124
We run a transparent http proxy on 126.96.36.199, which forwards all
HTTP requests to 188.8.131.52. That works perfectly fine.
However, of course HTTPS connections fail. Is there any solution, which
allows us to also forward HTTPS connections to 184.108.40.206?

Re: SSL Proxy / How to forward HTTPS connections?
If I am not mistaken, you can use Apache's SSLProxyEngine directive to
terminate the inbound SSL connection, then establish another SSL
connection to the internal server. I'm using a similar functionality
with Apache passing data into an internal application server right now.
