Web Socket Proxy
Table of Contents
Specifies the URI(s) that will use this WebSocket backend. Traffic to this URI will only be forwarded to the WebSocket backend when it contains a WebSocket upgrade request.
Traffic without this upgrade request will automatically be forwarded to the Context that this URI belongs to. If no Context exists for this URI, LSWS will treat this traffic as though it is accessing a static context with the location $DOC_ROOT/URI.
A plain URI (starting with "/"). If the URI ends with a "/", then this WebSocket backend will include all sub-URIs under this URI.
A unique socket address used by the WebSocket backend. IPv4 sockets, IPv6 sockets, and Unix Domain Sockets (UDS) are supported. IPv4 and IPv6 sockets can be used for communication over the network. UDS can only be used when the WebSocket backend resides on the same machine as the server.
IPv4/IPv6 address:port, UDS://path, or unix:path
If the WebSocket backend runs on the same machine, UDS is preferred. If you have to use an IPv4 or IPv6 socket, set the IP address to localhost or 127.0.0.1, so the WebSocket backend is inaccessible from other machines.
Unix Domain Sockets generally provide higher performance than IPv4 or IPv6 sockets.
