Help setting up reverse proxy virtual host
I currently use lsws (which I think is GREAT BTW!) to host a couple of virtual hosts. Now I need access to my desktop windows from remote sites and ssh & RDP are being blocked by good firewall admins with egress filtering. So I'm trying to setup windowsXP RDP terminal server via IIS on a workstation, and I'd like to add this website as a virtual host to my existing lsws. But I'm having trouble with the conf after reading the howto for reverse proxying. Ultimately I want to add SSL to this setup before I'm done, because who trusts MS's security? I currently use OpenSSL for one of my virtual hosts with a self signed cert and I am happy.
-using lsws 2.1.5 standard
-have setup a dummy url via my hosts file for now to test a new url of "rdp.mysite.com" as the intended virtual host tartget.
-Have defined a new virtual host "RDP-Web" from a copy of the default virtual host
-in External Apps I've defined a "web server" ext app with address 192.168.1.5:80 which is the ip of the workstation running IIS on port 80
Just to be sure I've defined the ext app under the server and the virtual host.
-defined a script handler for htm extensions which is the doc type the TS web site uses as "web server" handler type.
When I try to reach the virtual host I get a default lsws page which I know comes from the default host config I copied above, and it also means that lsws is correctly redirecting to the virtual host. But its not proxying the requests onto the IIS workstation.
There is a local firewall involved since the lsws box is in my DMZ and the workstation is inside the FW. By the time of this posting I will have ensured that lsws can reach the port required.
What am I missing?
