I’m new to HAProxy and am trying to configure the following:
(1)External HTTPS request-> (2)Home Router -> (3)HAProxy running on OpenWRT ->(4)“Server” on ESP8266 device
(1) The external request will ultimately be coming from WebHooks in IFTTT but for now I’m just trying the request from a web browser
(2) The home router does not have a fixed IP so I’m using NoIP.com ddns to give me a fixed public url (ianpublic.ddns.net:8081). I’ve confirmed I can get through the router using NAT to the ESP server (192.168.1.80:81) - without the HAProxy in the loop.
(3) I’ve installed HAProxy v1.7.8 on a OpenWRT router on the internal private network and redirected the public router NWT entry at it. This will need to terminate the SSL but for now I’d be happy just getting some traffic to pass through HAproxy.
(4) The ESP is a small Wifi enabled device which has a minuscule server running on it. It’s not powerful enough to terminate the SSL itself.
As I said - Step one is to just get HAProxy passing through. Here’s my config file:
global maxconn 4096 daemon uid 0 gid 0 defaults mode http option forwardfor log 127.0.0.1 local0 notice maxconn 2000 timeout connect 5000 timeout client 50000 timeout server 50000 listen my_http_proxy #frontend http bind :8081 cookie SERVERID insert nocache server st1 192.168.1.80:81
I’m not getting any debug info out on the console when using “-D” so I’m really struggling to understand what’s going on. Any help appreciated
