I’ve written about the very excellent Cloudflare CDN before. It’s a fantastic content delivery network with inbuilt security, I love it. This is another quick howto to get your Nginx web server working properly with Cloudflare.
I will assume you already have a working LEMP server working.
This will be a very quick and easy example. Sometimes you may need to use Nginx as a front end, webcache, load balancer or front end proxy. As a clue in Nginx speak they are all the same thing.
Things like this can come in very useful not only for load balancing but also if you’re navigating IPSec VPNs.
The repositories for Ubuntu don’t have Transparent Support enabled for Tinyproxy. Some firewalls and corporate installations need to use transparent proxies if they are internally redirecting.

I couldn’t find any decent guides out there on how to make this work, so I thought I’d put one together. Hopefully my research will come in useful for someone else… Warning this is a little more in-depth than my usual tutorials, but I promise it will be worth it in the end.
