If you only use pount as a SSL endpoint, you have to inform TYPO3 or any
other application that it should generate https:// prepended URL anyway,
regardless of the fact that the system in fact runs without SSL. I did
not try with TYPO3 but I had too many problems with other software and I
found another solution that works.
Instead of using an unencrypted connection to your backend server, use
an SSL connection too; this is easily done with stunnel4. That is:
------- pound -- stunnel4 ------------ webserver on SSL
The certificate you use for the webserver does not have to be "valid"
(dates and the rest) if you configure stunnel4 not to take care of this.
This allows you to have a proper SSL connection and apps that run on
your webserver see an encrypted connection and generate URL accordingly,
meaning no further configuration is needed.
I may give you a setup example of pound + stunnel4 in such case if you want.
