Portzilla

How to proxy a remote location

Overview

Use Portzilla to easily proxy to any location on the internet.

Additional Notes

Remote Locations may not include ports.

Take care to set the protocol correctly. You may experience inadvertant redirects if Target Location is set to http://yoursite.com but your site uses https. In this case, set Target Location to https://www.yoursite.com.

Step 1
Configure and install Portzilla

Once the service is open to the internet, we configured and installed Portzilla with the following options.
