What exactly is a "layer 3 proxy for server publications" supposed to
MS termiminology.. servers that have to remain inside the lan are 'published'. E.g. the intranet web server has to have AD and database connections, so it can't be moved to a dmz easily.

http proxy should be able to:
termination https connections (use http to internal servers)

Why would you want to break https?
Because of the necessary address translations. The connection to that web server is secure (separate switch, switch and cables not reachable for anyone but IT).
eg. internal link file://server/share -> erxternal ftp://server/dir
I know, this could be done by script, but i have little influence on our web programmer.

handle (s)ftp (maybe a separate component)

Why would you want to break ssh?

the original ftp server no capabilities ssl at all. i hope to add that on the gateway.
