Pfsense tls passthrue

Hello :slight_smile: Long time lurker :smiley:

i have looked at “How To Setup ACME, Let’s Encrypt, and HAProxy HTTPS offloading on pfsense” but i want tls passthrue but the pfsense gui is abit weird :stuck_out_tongue: im new to HAProxy.


i want port 80 and 443 to go to diff servers depending on there hostname and let Lets Encrypt passthrue to let the backends handle it :slight_smile: .

i got a unifi controller that i want to handle LE by itself. all ports that needs to me opend are port forwarding.

if anyone can show me how do to this or is the way Tom is showing us a good way to use this? :slight_smile:

I am not sure why you would want to do that, but you can follow my video and tell HA Proxy not to handle the certificate.

He probably needs the proxy for layer 7 routing all his sites on 443 and to have end to end encryption at that point :slightly_smiling_face:

Yeah definitely sounds like he is trying to get around not having enough IP addresses.

Hello all :smiley: thanks for the tips :smiley: @LTS_Tom. i followd you´re guide and let PFSense handle the SSL Certs…

with the Unifi network app on my phone and changeing the connection port on the app fron 8443 to 443 it works i diddent get a invalid ssl cert :slight_smile:

i will put up more stuff via PFSense when i got the time :smiley:

So your wanting a reverse proxy based on domain name with TLS passthrough? I only wish I knew how to do this with HA proxy.

This is the end result of a config made in pfsesne but if you have your own standalone haproxy then this is how you write the config. This will do SSL passthrough based on domain name and redirect http to https. I hope this helps someone :slight_smile: I took out public IP for obvious reasons. If you have questions on what is going on in this config I’d be happy to answer.
