How to create a proxy to redirect http requests to https using node.js?

Hi Guys,

I am new to a Node.js developer. I want to create a proxy server that redirects http requests to https. lets say my system IP is (open port ) my public IP is yyy.yy.yyy.yy ( opened port is port2) I have bound my public IP to a test domain.

I am writing a node.js program that redirects http calls to https. I have found http-proxy-middleware npm that has methods to do this.

var express = require('express')
var proxy =  require('http-proxy-middleware');
const fs= require('fs');

var proxyServer = proxy({
  target: '',
  port: port2,
  changeOrigin: true, 
  cert: fs.readFileSync('certificate.crt'),

var app = express()

app.use('*',  proxyServer)



the certificate is in the same dir. a server is running on port1 on my system

Now, this redirects to the https URL but I get this error Your connection is not private. Apparently, SSL certification failed or some other issue.

Please point out what I am doing wrong and what could be a possible solution.

Thanks & Regards

This does not feel like a CI question. While I don’t think such questions are forbidden here, you would probably have more luck on Stack Overflow.
