Figure 8-1. Reverse Proxy Server in Front of HTTP and WebSocket Servers
Using a reverse proxy server provides several benefits, including enabling you to
deploy, administer, and update your WebSocket server separately from other servers in
your network. While reverse proxy servers can enable your application to use a single
port to access the servers in your topology, as the number of users increase, you'll need
