Serving Something From Home, Via Proxy (or Something)
I have an application that only runs on Windows, but I don't use it all that often and don't want to pay for a Windows VPS to run it. It presents itself as a web app.
I'm wondering if I could host it at home (where I have Windows) and proxy the traffic. So something like this:
- home computer runs Windows and the app
- from my secret island retreat, one of my fembots opens her laptop and goes to myvps.example.com which I host on a Linux LEB
- going to myvps.example.com transparently passes all traffic to my home on some nonstandard port and my home router sends it (via port forwarding, etc.) to the Windows box, which then responds and it my fembot sees it in her browser and has no idea I'm using Windows at all (except for a bit of latency)
The LEB would have to be periodically updated with my residential Comcast IP, or find it via dyndns.
Can I do something like this purely with nginx upstream or do I need something fancier, and if so...what?
