SA2500 as HTTP Reverse Proxy?

Can the SA2500 IVE be used as a HTTP Reverse Proxy?

EXAMPLE
End user web browses to URL https://www.company-outside.com, which resolves to the public IP address a.a.a.a configured on an interface of the SA2500.

The SA2500 automatically reverse proxies the HTTP request to https://www.company-inside.com, which resolves to the private IP address b.b.b.b configured as an interface of the SA2500.

The end-user must not be required to authenticate with the SA2500.

The URL displayed in the end users browser must remain unchanged.

Yes. You need to set up an Authorization only sign in policy. Here you assign the external DNS name (www.company-outside.com) as the virtual host name and the Backend URL (https://company-inside.com) to internal web site.

You will also need to set up assgin a role that has a web resource policy allowing access to the internal web site
