Websocket Reverse Proxy over TLS


New Member
I have followed the post of reverse proxying Websockets using OpenLightSpeed. What I have not found is how to do it over tls ( wss ). My application needs to access the websockets server over a secure channel and how can I achieve that in OpenLightSpeed?


LiteSpeed currently can only offload SSL and forward to the backend using ws://. wss:// is not currently supported, and there are no plans to make it available soon. If you must, you could try an SSL tunnel. LiteSpeed communicates with the SSL tunnel via ws://, the SSL tunnel adds SSL encryption, and then the tunnel communicates with the backend via wss://.
