We are hosting an environment comprised of a medical software that needs to connect to another 3rd party add-on's server that they are hosting.
It would communicate in this order:
After much consulting for best security practices, the vendor suggested configuring a reverse proxy server in our DMZ.
I've gone through much documentation for this, most of the documentation appears to suggest the reverse proxy talking from one server to another one server or using actual sites as opposed to IP addresses. My question is, can this be configured through reverse
There seems be many different guides for this, and for now, I've followed the Skype for Business protocol for reverse proxy and awaiting to test it, I'm just not sure if AAR/Rewrite will route the traffic correctly.
Currently in the DMZ server IIS, i have this configured:
Server Farms (configured with server IP addresses, not URLs)
- Server Farm 1: Authentication Server
- Server Farm 2: Web Server
DMZ Server level ARR:
- Proxy not enabled
DMZ Server level URL Rewrite:
- Auth Server_loadbalance_SSL
- Conditions: matches the pattern for the IP of Vendor
- Action Type: Route to Server Farm
- Web Server_loadbalance_SSL
Any suggestions (or just knowing if this is going to work at all) would be greatly appreciated.

According to your description,you could use ip address for reverse proxy. It's both ok if you use target server ip address or use server name.
You could add urlrewrite module and set as the link as below:
