    HI @Peter_1985
    A reverse proxy is a network device that takes in traffic coming from the Internet (for example), and forwards this traffic to a backend server on your private network, allow that backend server to be accessible to people who are not necessarily connected to your network.

    Please refer to the articles on how to use IIS and URL Rewrite as a reverse proxy

    Hi Learn2skills,
    I followed up your URL/steps and have done proper setup. Please advise why "Reverse proxy" is not available to choose below.
