Description

Hello
Is it possible that the connection to the bip server occurs through a reverse proxy (nginx) ?
Like :

server {
        listen               80;
        server_name  irc.foo.bar;
        access_log  /var/log/nginx/access.log;
        error_log  /var/log/nginx/error.log;
        location / {
                proxy_pass      http://bipserver:7778 ;
                include         /etc/nginx/proxy.conf;
        }
}

Thanks.

No. The protocol used between IRC clients and bip server is IRC. I don't understand the use case.

Hello,

Isn't it a problem with your IRC Client's proxy configuration ?
Bip will send/get packet to/from nginx like it was the IRC client, there nothing to do in Bip side.

It's the IRC client which must connect to the reverse proxy (in thunderbird : Edition -> Preferences -> Advanced -> Network and ? -> Parameters -> [your proxy configuration]).

I can be wrong, but with a reverse proxy, there is nothing to do in the server-side, only in the client-side.
