HTTP Proxy with a twist?
Posted on 2010-08-22
Consider the following set up:
[Windows PC] ---> [F/W tcp/22/80/443/3389] ---> [FreeBSD jump host inside DMZ] ---> [SLES web server]
The jumphost provides the gateway to the web server from our corporate network - desktop users utilise X11 forwarding to launch Firefox/Opera browser from their Windows PC.
However, we have a new requirement that requires the use of Internet Explorer to view certain pages on the SLES web server.
Given FreeBSD won't run IE, what are my options?
I'm considering an HTTP proxy but not quite sure how this could be used given that the SLES web server is not directly reachable from the Windows PC.
