What is Routed-to-Proxy(R2P)?
- What is the benefit of using R2P?
- What are the requirements to enable R2P?
- Does it have additional cost?
Routed-to-Proxy is a configuration added by Silverline to the customer's settings which allows hosts from the routed IP space to be allocated for proxy usage.
- The benefit of R2P is that customers do not have to make DNS changes when a proxy is configured in Silverline
- When creating a new proxy, customers can select the frontend IP address that needs to be allocated to process proxy requests
- In order to use R2P, customers must advertise via routed mode at least a Class C network to Silverline at all times
- The server IP (backend IP address) must not be the same as the IP allocated on the frontend.
- NOTE: The front and backend IP addresses can be part of the same class C network
- The R2P service does not involve any additional cost
