dear All,

I'm configuring a small LAB and i want to ask if i can use the Windows 2012 R2 "IIS ARR" as proxy so the servers in my LAB will access internet through IIS ARR?

thanks

In general yes.  But do you want a forward or reverse proxy?  Big difference.

Here is an article explaining how to config ARR as a forward proxy:

Here is an article explaining hoe to config ARR as a reverse proxy:

Hi Dan, thanks for your reply.

Actually that's why i choose IIS ARR because i need to use it as forward and reverse proxy at the same time, i don't know if it's will works together or not?

When going thru the Microsoft IIS ARR documentation, I cannot find or know a reason why the one server couldn't be configured to be both a forward and reverse proxy.  Though I would caution that this server will probably be very active and recommend a server with enough physical resources to handle the load.
