Using a Single, Stand-Alone Instance with Load Balancer Used as a Reverse-Proxy Plug-in

You can also configure your load balancer to use stand-alone server instance instead of a cluster. This configuration results in the load balancer plug-in working as a reverse-proxy plug-in (sometimes called a pass-through plug-in). When the web server receives requests for applications enabled in the load balancer, it forwards the requests directly to the Application Server.

Use the same procedures to configure the load balancer for a pass-through plug-in as you use to configure it for a cluster of server instances.
