DESCRIPTION

This module implements HTTP client functionality. Filter frontend_net + http_client in combo - acts as a normal, non-transparent, proxy.

The element default-host of configuration specifies the default host in the remote URL. If this is set, frontend_net + http_client acts as a transparent HTTP proxy as well.

The configuration element, proxy, is optional and enables a remote HTTP proxy to be in use.

x-forwarded-for

Is a boolean value (false, true). If true, the peer IP address as seen in frontend_net will be added to x-forwarded HTTP header.

bind_host

Is a boolean value (false, true). If true, the out going TCP connection will be bound to the same as listening IP.
