Simple HTTP port redirect not working

Hi there,

for a problem at work I am unable to solve, I have created this quick test scenario:

I have two servers:

    • HAProxy Server
    • Should bind to 2007
    • Web server
    • Listens on Port 8080

Instead of using I want to use
Therefore, I have created this minimal example:

frontend front_knx_server
	mode http
	default_backend back_knx_server

backend back_knx_server
	mode http
	server knx_server

Unfortunately, it is not working. The error in MS Edge is: ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT
Can anybody help me out? Why is this not working?

I’m assuming something between the client and haproxy is dropping the request. Firewalls et all (including on the host itself).
