Configure HAProxy to use ELMA365 behind a reverse proxy

A reverse proxy is used to redirect requests from external users sent to the server in the company’s corporate network. A reversed proxy needs to be installed on the company’s gateway that has:

  • At least one public IP address that gets requests from the Internet.
  • Connection to the corporate network, for example,

To use a reverse proxy, you need to register a domain name and add a DNS A record specifying the reverse proxy’s public IP address. You can register an unlimited number of domain names for one IP address. Then, depending on the domain name, you can distribute the incoming traffic to different servers within the corporate network.

In the example below, we’re using the elma365client.domain.com domain name.

The example server with the ELMA365 application is located at the following IP address in the corporate network:

The ELMA365 application will not work correctly with port forwarding. This article shows how to use Nginx as the reverse proxy.

During installation or reconfiguration, in the Enter ELMA365 domain name (FQDN) or IP address field, specify elma365client.domain.com as the external domain that ELMA365 will be available at and enable SSL termination.
