Using the Reverse Proxy Server Feature

This feature is available in the TSplus Enterprise Edition.

The Reverse Proxy system acts as an intermediary for its associated servers to be contacted by any client.
The advantage of using a reverse-proxy is simple: you will no longer need to create as many port redirection rules as your number of TSplus servers.
Whether or not you are using the load balancing feature, you need to activate it in order to connect using the reverse proxy. In TSplus, it provides a unique access point to a farm of load-balanced TSplus servers:

This unique access point will be your Gateway Portal Server.
Since this server is going to be accessed remotely, you will need to set up one port redirection rule on your router, including the http or https ports depending on your preference (80 being the default port for http and 443 for https).

Click on the Gateway tile then click on the "Reverse-Proxy Server Role" tile:

Once you completed your list of servers, click on "Save Gateway Reverse-Proxy settings" and restart the Web services located in the Admin Tool's Web tile.

Reverse-Proxy and Generated Connection Clients

You can generate a Connection Client which will connect to an Application Server through the Reverse-Proxy Server.

To do so, assuming that your gateway has public IP and your backend server has internal name "srv2", then use the special URL in the server address field of the Connection Client Generator.

For example:

Unless you want to connect to a given Application server.
