Hope all is well.
We’re very close to launching tyk in a production environment. However, one issue has come up:
When a request is made to Tyk, who actually makes the request to the API? Is it Tyk or the client?
The reason I ask is because I ran a test in AWS where my Tyk and API servers are. I opened access on port 80/443 to the Tyk server and closed access to the API server for everyone but the Tyk server security group.
After I did this, the API server could not be accessed when requests were made to Tyk.
Is this the expected behavior? I don’t really want to expose my API server if I can avoid it.
