reverse proxy

In computer networks, a reverse proxy is a type of proxy server that retrieves resources on behalf of a client from one or more servers. These resources are then returned to the client, appearing as if they originated from the proxy server itself. Unlike a forward proxy, which is an intermediary for its associated clients to contact any server, a reverse proxy is an intermediary for its associated servers to be contacted by any client.
Quite often, popular web servers use reverse-proxying functionality, shielding application frameworks of weaker HTTP capabilities.

    Befuddled port forwarding... Off-NAS reverse proxy confusion

    I've been toying with nginx (docker) on a Raspberry Pi, but when I forward 443 to the RPi on the same network, things don't go as I hoped. Some background... Typically, 443 is forwarded to the NAS (443>443) and the NAS internal reverse proxy works as expected. But when I edited the router 443...
