Looking for a reverse proxy

    Hi gents

    I used to run Pound reverse proxy on a Linux box. Now I'd like it on my Tomato box and I tried all compiled versions I could find through ipkg (out of various http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org feeds) but could not find any that would run on Tomato.

    Has someone compiled a version ? Or maybe there's other stuff working well ? Does squid exists for Tomato ?

    I don't know if it can be configured to run in a reverse fashion (in fact I'm not really sure I understand the reason for a reverse proxy), but sRelay is the only proxy server I've seen so far compiled on Tomato:


    Maybe this doesn't help you...

    Thanks for your answer - actually this is not what I'm looking for.

    A reverse proxy is a tool that redirects http requests to a specific server, depending on the url - all servers having the same address.
    Very useful at home when you have only one IP address, you can declare many DNS aliases (such as the DynDNS wildcars) and then assign one service per name.
    It's easier than assigning a different port per service - in these times when my RSSI alows me to browse only on port 80 !

    Reverse proxy also provide many other services, such as failover and load balancing...
