This email has been classified as: PROTECT I wonder if someone can help me out with an issue that has come to light with a new application we are running behind our Squid 2.6 Reverse Proxy Server.

At the moment we have a situation shown below;


For all applications, Traffic comes in on HTTPS (and HTTP as well, but mostly HTTPS) from the Internet, passes through FIREWALL1 and then offloads the SSL at the REVERSE-PROXY, then the rest of the traffic flows as HTTP through FIREWALL2 and onto the APPLICATION WEB SERVER.

This works for all of the sites we've been serving for the past two years, but for this particular new application, if you connect using https://my.server.com when the app redirects, Squid appears to go to http://my.server.com i.e. it does not stay encrypted.  I've found a similar problem in this post using mod_proxy (http://serverfault.com/questions/388927/apache-reverseproxypass-redrects-to-http-rather-than-https)

Can you point me in any direction to assist with this solution please?

Thanks in advance
