Reverse Proxy Options

We are trying to setup a reverse proxy for load balancing in front of two web servers. We need a reverse proxy that can handle https requests as well as provide gzip compression and allows for rewrites at the proxy level.

Pound would work but it does not provide gzip compression

HAproxy would be great but no https support

nginx would be an option but the limited english documentation is giving us some headaches.

Does anyone have any other recommendations or are there any nginx experts that would be willing to give us some guidance on our config file?

No personal experience, but it looks like Squid can be compiled with HTTPS support... Seems that gzip is can be made to work with Apache, but not IIS.

You could try Lighttpd. I have not used it as a reverse proxy, but I have used it as a simple web server and it is easy to configure and reasonably well documented.
