Hello all,

 I'm trying to set up a reverse proxy on Squid to forward all inbound requests to a Microsoft Web Server. Here's the setup.

client ---->https --->squid reverse proxy----> https----> IIS

The squid and IIS boxes are setup to answer on 443. I get an error "Invalid request or protocol". The connection to the proxy seems fine and halts going to the IIS box. Got any ideas on how to set this up properly? I'll entertain any other open-source ideas besides Squid but the IIS box must continue to answer on 443. Thanks for the help in advance.

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp -d XXX.YYY.ZZZ.XXX --dport 443 -j DNAT --to AAA.BBB.CCC.DDD:5900

where XXX.YYY.ZZZ.XXX is the external ip address of the gateway computer, and AAA.BBB.CCC.DDD is the ip address of the internal computer.
