Standalone reverse proxy with support for content rewriting

I am looking for a replacement to Orenosp (, a shareware reverse proxy server for Linux. Its main selling points were:

- standalone
- single https frontend with name-based virtual host support
- multiple http/https backends
- persistent connections to backends
- header (incoming and outgoing) and content rewriting with multiple rules

I have looked at yxorp, nginx, apache mod_proxy, squid.  Neither of them does all of the above.

nginx has most features that I require, looks like I'll be using it eventually.

Why do you want to replace your current software ?
svsAuthor Commented:
It's shareware and binary-only. I'd rather have free software with source code.
Will You Be GDPR Compliant by 5/28/2018?

GDPR? That's a regulation for the European Union. But, if you collect data from customers or employees within the EU, then you need to know about GDPR and make sure your organization is compliant by May 2018. Check out our preparation checklist to make sure you're on track today!

Take a look at Pound ( I think it will do what you are looking for.

Not quite.  It appears to do 1), 3) and 4), but not 2) and 5)
svsAuthor Commented:
hm, Varnish looks promising --
nginx could be hacked, too (http_sub_module looks promising), but at the moment I don't have time for this.
svsAuthor Commented:
I have just realized that 4) is not actually required -- it would be if I were to proxy a site that uses NTLM authentication, but that isn't the case any more.
