Can I balance the traffic of my firewall with HAproxy?



I’m trying to make a firewall cluster with load balance. I read that haproxy can help me with the load balance. But…I don’t know how to configure correctly.

I have 3 nodes, a frontend and two backends. The backends have the same iptables configuration. I just want to balance all the network traffic to this “nodes”.

That’s possible? or haproxy is not the tool that I need?



Whats the service/application?




That’s not what I mean. I mean what services are the users accessing?


Ssh, web and occasionally ftp


Haproxy is not a forwarding proxy, but a reverse proxy. I assume you are looking for the former.
