Reverse Proxy operating on OpenVPN specific entries?

Post by finke » Wed Nov 21, 2018 4:41 pm

Hello everyone,

does anyone know how to set up a reverse proxy that could decide (e.g. relay, drop, etc) based on
- client distinct name (so the reverse proxy could drop all unknown clients)
- openvpn version (could be used to support very old clients also, which cannot be upgraded for any reason)
- requested cipher
- ...
Would it be possible to run Openvpn itself as a reverse proxy? How?

I am not looking for well known proxies like nginx, haproxy or sslh.

Thanks

Torsten

hope that helps.

If they cannot be upgraded then they must be replaced.
