Off-board server:
An off-board server is a server that executes as a proxy for a legacy system. It communicates with the legacy system using the custom protocols supported by the legacy system. It communicates with external applications using industry-standard protocols.

An off-board server is used enable secure remote access to mainframes. This is done typically done by forwarding SSL requests to the mainframes via serial connections
