Routing Office WebApp 2013 traffic through Sharepoint 2013 foundation server

Dear all,

I have 2 servers:
SP01.test.local - Sharepoint 2013 foundation server
WEBAPP1.test.local - Office WebApp 2013 server

These two are linked together via WOPI so that SharePoint users can use the WebApp's in Sharepoint. This works fine.

By default, traffic between the client and the WebApp's (opened via Sharepoint) are directly between those two.

What I want is that the client only communicates with the Sharepoint servers, and that WebApp is routed/proxied through the sharepoint server.

So, for external access, only port 80 and 443 have to be opened/forwarded to the SharePoint server and that all traffic concerning between the client and the Office WebApp is router/proxied through SP01.

Is this possible, or does a client always have to communicate directly with the Webapp server?

It's my understanding that all traffic does go through the SharePoint server.  Why do you feel otherwise?

I feel otherwise because:

Let's say I forward port 80/443 from my public IP to the internal IP of the sharepoint server. When I do this, sharepoints works, but OWA does not.

If I also forward 80/443 on a seperate public IP to the OWA internal IP, it suddenly works.

So, my Internet Explorer seems to need direct contact to the OWA server. Also when using netstat.exe I can see connections being active directly between my laptop and the OWA server.

Sharepoint is connected to OWA, but does not proxy this traffic.
