Tutorial :IIS as reverse proxy



Question:

I'm looking into to having IIS doing authentication in an application being executed on a J2EE server (JBoss). Is there any ways to have IIS work as reverse proxy and propagating the username and/or roles of the user the proxied application (JBoss). And also what IIS version would I need, if it's possible? I have license for IIS, so I'd like to do it in IIS, but otherwise I'd prefer open source.

Thanks!

Tomas


Solution:1

It's not open source, but ApplicationRequestRouting for IIS 7.0 can act as a reverse proxy.

Solution:2

Microsoft ISA server does that - you may want to look at that first.


Solution:3

IIRF does reverse proxy and URL rewriting for IIS5/6/7.

It's open source, and uses a syntax evry similar to mod_proxy / .htaccess for its rules.

You need v2.0 to get the reverse proxy capability.
