Can I use nginx as a normal proxy (not reverse proxy) to a internetwebsite?

Hello All,

I'am a rookie with nginx configuration and would be glad if someone could help me.

Can I use nginx as a normal proxy (not reverse proxy) for an internal application to the internet.

For exmple:
I have a application "XYZ" located in my internal network. This application need's secure access to an official website in the internet over ssl (https://www.example.com). I would connect this application to the official website over nginx-proxy located in the DMZ. The nginx-proxy should listen to port 7443 and forward the request to the official website (https://www.example.com).

My questions:

Can i use the nginx proxy in that way described above?

Can anyone post me an example-configuration?

Is it necessary to configure a ssl-certificate on the nginx-proxy and set the ssl-parameter to "on"?

Thanxs all for support me!

Best regards

J├╝rgen
