[HELP NEEDED] About HAProxy and reverse proxying

jvnadrjvnadr Member

Hi all!

I always use nginx as reverse proxy for servers using nat containers or vms. Have never used HAproxy, but I want to start playing with it because it seems more flexible and with more options.

So, a basic question: Can HAproxy be used for reverse proxying (aka redirect url requests from the node) not only for protocols like http and email (like nginx proxy) but also for services like multimedia streaming (rtsp, rtmp etc.), ftp etc? Nginx has limitations and can forward only http/https and mail requests.

Also, is there any handy "tutorial for idiots" with examples that I can use to start learning the basics on reverse proxying with HAProxy?
The scenario will be a node with a single ip forwarding to a container that has installed HAproxy and, from there, forwarding any domain-based request to another container/virtual machine with different services (web server, streaming server etc.).

Any help will be much appreciated!
