My thought process here is that, the original request will come in on port 80 and the client will get redirected to 1080. Content rule WebSite will then load balance across the servers on the redirected port 1080. Also if the site redirects to 443, the content rule WebSite will load balance that as well.
Comment on your post: if I specify the port in the service, does that mean it will forward the requests to the web servers on that port? If so, what happens if the server sends a redirect to https (443)? Do I need to create a service with port 443?
Yes, including a port number in the service config makes the box change the port. So you might have multiple content rules for different ports all using the same services. If you dont specify the service port number, it remains the same as what the client sent; if you do specify the port then all traffic to the service will go on the port specified under the service.
If you have an SSL redirect and a service configured with port 80 for example, then you might need new services with port 443 or no port, to be used with the port 443 content rule. This would be in the case of the services handling ssl internally. If there was an ssl module or other external ssl engine, then the clear text services (using port 80 most likely) would still do the job.
