BigBlueButton, from http to https reverse proxy
 
Hello,

I am working on a project to create a video conferencing environment. For this I use a default installation of BigBlueButton on ubuntu 10.04.
One of the main problems here is that it's not safe enough to share classified documents trough this software. It's a simple webserver that uses nginx. What I want to do is make this connection secure.
one of the problems is that I don't only have a connection trough port 80 but it uses the following ports:
port 80 (HTTP), 1935 (RTMP), 9123 (Desktop sharing).

I would like to use a proxy instead of some tunneling or vpn to do this.

Would anyone happen to know anything about squid or another equivalent to do this?

Ok it seems quite hard to do this. Any help would be great!

hi, maybe you can edit the nginx configuration to force using https.

maybe this can help https://calomel.org/nginx.html

thanks for your reply, but it's not just that easy some configuration settings are quite persistent in BBB we've decided to use a vpn tunnel instead.
