The Proxmox node routes the traffic back to the reverse proxy because 
the reverse proxy host is the node's default route. The reverse proxy 
has the packet forwarding enabled and a firewall configured.

Think of that "Reverse proxy" it as a software router, that stands 
between the Internet and your internal network. It does SNAT on outgoing 
connections and DNAT for incoming VNC connections.
In addition to the routing and packets mangling stuff, this router has 
installed Nginx, that serves as reverse proxy to Proxmox Web GUI.

Start by setting up the software router with SNAT (everything form in to 
out) and DNAT (ports 5900:6000 forwarded to a chosen Proxmox node) 
capabilities. Then, set up Nginx to make the web GUI visible to outside.
