WMS Cache/Proxy plug-in - Proxy properties tab


Item Description


Select this option so that this server functions as a cache/proxy server for the origin server. To the client, the proxy appears to be the origin server.

Proxy Redirect

Select this option to redirect a client request to another server in an array of cache/proxy servers, and then type the name of the alternate server in the Alternate Proxy box.

You can use proxy redirection to balance loads, connect the client to a closer proxy, or send the client to content that has already been cached.

Reverse Proxy

Select this option so that this server functions as a reverse proxy server, and then, in the Content Server box, type the name of the publishing point on the server to which you want to forward the client request for content (for example, OriginServerName/PublishingPointName).

A reverse proxy server dedicates any incoming client request to a specific server and can be used for load balancing on a server farm.
