It sounds to me like you're looking for a /forward/ proxy, which *really* isn't HAProxy's forte. I seem to recall it can /just/ about be mangled into doing something like what you want, but you'll have much more luck looking at Squid for this - that's one of its primary use cases. To confirm that you are actually looking for a forward proxy, answer this: are you able to deterministically list *all* of the domains that you wish to load-balance? Or are you looking to balance "whatever a user might type into their web browser"? Also - when you mentioned the internet gateway, do you really just mean a router? I.e. a box which is *just* moving packets, and not looking inside each HTTP request and then routing them based on the Host header it finds? Back to forward proxying: if you don't like Squid, then Nginx can, with a bit of force, be made to do the job pretty well. Varnish may also be able to achieve it with its more recent kinda dynamic backends [citation required; possible rubbish being spouted]. But I wouldn't personally go through the pain of trying to make HAProxy do this. Jonathan
