I would like to use F5 as reverse proxy for sharepoint application. I would appreciate if someboday can give input on below:
1- What is the traffic flow for reverse proxy. I mean client request comes from internet to virtual IP on F5. Then F5 terminates the session and creates new session towards server. What would be the source IP for this session, which F5 creates towards server?
2- I could not find the reverse proxy setting under virutal server setting? Where I can find it or F5 by default is reverse proxy for all virtual server?
3- What is the difference between half and full reverse proxy? F5 is half or full reverse proxy?
4- What are the benfits of reverse proxy?
Looking forward for the response
Well, if you can't think of any benefits, then don't use it until there is a real need for it.
Most use cases are for more security (an extra shield with/without extra security configuration), and/or for load balancing for more application capacity.
Can somebody explain me more details about F5 as Reverse proxy with diagrammatic.
