First of all does this sound like the safest approach and if so can anyone provide the name of a good stable/secure
reverse proxy product.
I currently use haproxy for these sorts of things. It has worked out
just fine. For a more robust solution, I am preparing to move towards
OpenBSD's relayd system which you may find interesting as well. Model
it out in VMWare (or something similar) first if you can, just to get
a feel for how the configs work and to make sure that it is right for
I would still consider placing a dedicated OWA server in the DMZ
behind the reverse proxy, as the proxy alone doesn't guarantee that
OWA cannot be compromised (at least to my tiny brain).
All the Best,
