This option is intended to defend web applications running on remote hosts which can not be protected directly by WAAS (e.g. Windows Servers).
|Remote host option is only available for WAAS host rules.|
A "middle-box" host instance with WAAS supported OS should be set up.
Traffic to the web application should be directed to the "middle-box" host.
Ports on the "middle-box" host to which traffic is directed to should be unused (WAAS will listen on these ports for incoming requests).
WAAS host rule with
Remote hostsettings should be deployed to protect the "middle-box" host.
Incoming traffic to the "middle-box" host will be forwarded to the specified address (resolvable hostname or IP address) by WAAS.

Use of TLS and destination port is determined by the endpoint configuration in the
App definition tab.
The following protected endpoints are defined in the

Expected result would be as follows:
HTTPS traffic to www.example1.com on port 443 would be forwarded via HTTPS to www.remotehost.com
HTTP traffic to www.example1.com on port 80 would be forwarded via HTTP to www.remotehost.com
|Protected endpoints with TLS enabled will not forward non-TLS HTTP requests.|
