Using a Raspberry Pi and Node.js as a Reverse Proxy

Node.js is continuing to gain popularity and as an exercise to make practical use of the Raspberry Pi I decided to try using it as a reverse proxy.

Raspberry Pi’s are cheap at $35 for the computer and a few extra dollars for an SD card. For about $45 you can use the Pi to act as a reverse proxy directing traffic of any sort, but for the purposes of this writing only web traffic, to a more robust server.
