Hello all,
I've a question: I really new to varnish (and also nginx). today my boss asked me to move the rules we currently have with reverse proxy nginx to varnish. we have a big number of redirect like:
              location = /gange {
                        rewrite ^(.*[^/])$ $1/ permanent;
                }

               location /gange {
                        proxy_pass http://www4-local/gange;
                        proxy_redirect default;
                        proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
                        proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
                        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
                }

Varnish 'doesn't' do redirects. But you can hack what looks like a redirect. Examples here
https://www.varnish-cache.org/trac/wiki/VCLExampleRedirectInVCL

...unless you want to redirect invisibly in the backend?

Something like:

backend www4-local {
    .host = "www4-local";
    .port = "80";
}

sub vcl_recv {
 if(req.url ~ "^/gange") {
     if(req.url ~ "[^/]$") {
        set req.url = regsub(req.url, "$", "/");
        lookup;
    } 
 ....
}

sub vcl_fetch {
 if(req.url ~ "^/gange") {
            set req.http.X-Real-IP = client.ip;
            set req.backend = www4-local;

            if (req.http.x-forwarded-for) {
                set req.http.X-Forwarded-For = req.http.X-Forwarded-For + ", " + client.ip;
            } else {
                set req.http.X-Forwarded-For = client.ip;
            }
            remove req.http.Cookie;
   }

   ....
}

You probably should move the following block from vcl_fetch  to vcl_recv:

            set req.http.X-Real-IP = client.ip;
            set req.backend = www4-local;

            if (req.http.x-forwarded-for) {
                set req.http.X-Forwarded-For = req.http.X-Forwarded-For + ", " + client.ip;
            } else {
                set req.http.X-Forwarded-For = client.ip;
            }
