Mixing Synology application portal with the reverse proxy

Unread post by mike@nova.net.nz » Thu Dec 07, 2017 9:18 am


On my Synology I run some Docker containers which are attached to the host network e.g. PlexPy is in a container and shows up on the Synology IP address on port 8181
I want to expose some of these services externally behind a single IP address, but not on separate ports.
Put another way I want the Synology to translate https://home.mydomain.com/PlexPy to https://localhost:8181/

I figure I need a reverse web proxy that uses URL rewriting. Basically a mix of the functions built into the Synology control panel features of the "Application Portal" and the "Reverse Proxy".

I could do this with a ngnix container but it would be messier (more config and software running that necessary) and I would have to stop DSM from using port 443.

Any helpful ideas on a simple way to address this issue would be much appreciated.... perhaps a customer Application Portal configuration?
