Create SSL connection to backend

I am trying to configure a ‘f5 server-ssl profile’ onto an HAProxy front-end. I am not sure how to configure it so that when HAProxy initiates a connection (to let’s say a backend server) to do it via SSL.

Anyone ever done this?

When I create a healthcheck, using ssl check none does not work in this case (a consultant suggested I try this…) but I get a timeout.

To enable SSL on the backend server, add the ssl keyword.
To disable certificate verification add the verify none keyword.
To add a SNI value for HTTPS traffic add the sni str(<hostname>) keyword.
To add a SNI value for HTTPS health checks, add the check-sni <hostname> keyword.

Yes, this is a common configuration.
