Virtual Transparent Compression Reverse Proxy how to start install and configure
 
Hi thank you for reading the request

We have just completed the implementation of a web based application which runs on various ports and servers. We are experiencing some performance issues with the application over our wan links they have high latency 300 ms and longer and limited bandwidth.

We have various options available to us, adding compression to the web server, installing a transparent reverse proxy in front of the web server and installing a transparent proxy at all the sites.
Can someone point me in the right direction, on how to configure a virtual (VMWare) transparent compression reverse proxy in front of the server? For the future configuration how would you configure the Reverse proxy so that the user can type in the ip 10.1.1.86 and see the website and that the reverse proxy does not show in the trace route. Is this possible? There is no fixed idea for the reverse proxy either bsd or linux as os, can be either squid, pound, zipproxy or any other reverse transparent proxy server.

How would you configure the network connections if all the servers are virtual and using unmanaged switches? Please direct me to an Idiots guide if possible.

Some requirements are that the reverse proxy fit into the network without reconfiguration of any clients, is not dns specific ie. need to be able to be used if the ip address is typed in the browser, transparent if possible to visible in the trace route.

I hope this is not impossible with unmanaged switched.

Current configuration
Client (ip 10.10.10.145)
|
|- Web server 1(ip 10.1.1.86)
|- Web server 2(ip 10.1.1.87)

Proposed future configuration

Client (ip 10.10.10.145)
|
|- Reverse Proxy nic 1 (ip 10.1.1.146)
Reverse Proxy nic 2 (ip 10.1.1.147)-|
|- Web server 1(ip 10.1.1.86)
|- Web server 2(ip 10.1.1.87)

Please direct me to documentation, I have tried searches on google with little success

Thank you
Wayne
