Squid reverse proxy or Varnish



  • Hi all,

    I have 2 webservers behind a pfSense box. (one IIS7 and one Apache) Bothe webservers host various sites. I only have 1 public IP address so I'm looking into a reverse proxy. As I understood, both packages will do what I need, but why choose one above the other?

    Thanks for your advice



  • Varnish supports only http. If you need https then try first squid-reverse.

    If you need speed and reduce server load on your http servers, use varnish.
