Is HAProxy still used?

I'm curious to know if HAProxy is still used in production environments and what are its pros/cons against other solutions?

I'd definitely recommend HAProxy. There are many of us who have migrated our networks from software appliances to a single server based platform, for example: Apache to nginx. Tomcat to Jetty. Cisco to Juniper. Cisco to Linux. Most of us have had success migrating from Cisco's proprietary networking stuff to Linux and Juniper's free/open source networking stuff. I use HAProxy in production. I like the fact that it can be deployed as a service which makes it easy to integrate with other services.

In addition, the performance of HAProxy is much better than that of Squid, which is often used in place of HAProxy.

How to configure HAProxy in Windows?

In this tutorial, we will see the HAProxy configuration in Windows 10 operating system. In Windows 10 operating system, there is a feature called Remote Desktop Services, and it allows users to access their home PC remotely. This feature is very useful in case you want to work from home, or if you need to work from office while being home, because you can access your PC from anywhere, be it from office or from home.

There are a lot of features that come with Remote Desktop Services in Windows 10, and most of them are very useful. For example, you can see your desktop in remote session, you can use other applications while you are in remote session, etc.

One of the most useful features of Remote Desktop Services in Windows 10 is the ability to access your local PC from anywhere. That means that if you are connected to your home PC via a local network, then you can access your home PC from anywhere. If you are connected to your home PC from a remote location such as a public WiFi hotspot, then you can access your home PC from there as well.

How to access your home PC from anywhere? To access your home PC from anywhere, you must configure your PC to use Remote Desktop Services. First, you must turn on the Remote Desktop Services in your PC. In Windows 10, you can do that by opening the Control Panel, selecting Remote Desktop Services from the left side menu, and then turning on the Turn on Remote Desktop Services.

After the Remote Desktop Services are turned on, you can access your home PC from anywhere using the RDP client (Remote Desktop Protocol client). You can use any RDP client, for example you can use Microsoft's RDP client or you can use third party RDP client such as RealVNC.

Before configuring HAProxy in Windows 10, you must enable the TCP/UDP port 3389 in your firewall settings. That way, the HAProxy server will be able to listen for incoming connections to the TCP/UDP port 3389. You can find out more about enabling ports in Windows 10 here.

To configure HAProxy in Windows 10, we will use HAProxy itself. You can download HAProxy from here.

Does HAProxy work on Windows?

Yes, HAProxy works on Windows.

It has a pre-compiled windows binary available for 32 and 64 bit versions.

To start HAProxy on Windows, just download the pre-compiled binary from our download page, extract it somewhere you can find it (it's in the folder haproxy-win32-installer) and run it from the command line. The HAProxy Windows installer will ask you to register the binary on Windows. Just accept the default choice and it will install HAProxy.

If you want to run HAProxy under IIS, just run the IIS app pool under administrator. If you want to run HAProxy as a Windows service, you need to register the binary with the Windows service control panel. Can I use HAProxy without a load balancer? Yes, HAProxy is a standalone application that listens on port 80/443 and distributes requests between multiple backends. Each backend has a local address and a local port, but also a backend attribute, that tells HAProxy where to send traffic. For example, let's assume you have a web server with a hostname webserver.com, running on port 443 and it will act as a reverse proxy to an application server located on another server.

To configure HAProxy to do this, you will have to create 2 Virtual Servers in IIS. A virtual server that will act as a reverse proxy, and the other one will act as the application server. To do this, create a new Virtual Server and name it something like WebServer and make sure it listens on port 443. In the bindings of this virtual server, add an endpoint binding to the local port 0.0:80 (to make HAProxy listen on all the available network interfaces).

On this endpoint, add a binding to webserver.com:443.

Now, create a new Virtual Server that will act as the application server, and name it ApplicationServer. Make sure it is set to run on port 80. And now add a binding to 0.
