@gotwf I'm not sure it's been weeks ago I wrote this. 😄
Maybe I did not find this or something didn't work for me. I can't tell you...
how can I configure IIS to be a Reserve Proxy? (like nginx).
(HTTP & HTTPS Ports to the standard NodeBB Port.)
I found a old thread where @Moritz-Friedrich said he will write a guide for that, and put it in the documentation portal. I couldn't find that guide.
Would be nice if someone can help me.
I just wanted to ask the same...
@Andi thats is a rare configuration around here, I am sure less that 1% of NodeBB users are using Windows servers. It has nothing to do with NodeBB, but if I knew, I would help.
In the IIS manager, there is a option called URL rewrite, there you can add a new rule.
The inbound should be the ip with the port (default 4567) and the outbound the TLD or a subdomain.
That isn't proxy, though. Will it do all that proxy does (IP preservation, for instance)?
Im not sure if it does that, but i think that this rule is called application request routing, and works the same way as a reverse proxy for what i can tell.
What if you wrote a guide for how far you've reached, let's say 70% of the way. Then it'll be easier for us to follow and then finish the rest (no promises though :p) Just a suggestion. You're probably the first trying to install on this server software
There's an edit button on the top right, and making a new page is as easy as just cloning and copying and pasting another guide and editing it
