           Summary: ProxyRemote does not allow for basic authentication
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: 2.0-HEAD
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: mod_proxy
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: stijn.maller@proximus.net


Using the ProxyRemote directive to forward some of the traffic to another Proxy 
fails when the second Proxy requires the user to specify a username/password.

ProxyRequests On
ProxyVia On
ProxyRemote * http://proxy.externaltraffic.com:8080
NoProxy .my.intranetservers.com

Step 1: Client tries to access an external website
Step 2: Apache forwards the request to proxy.externaltraffic.com
Step 3: proxy.externaltraffic.com sends back Proxy-Authenticate header
Step 4: Apache passes Proxy-Authenticate header on to the client
Step 5: Client tries to access the external website again, adding the
Proxy-Authorization header
Step 6: Apache forwards the request to proxy.externaltraffic.com, but does not 
pass the Proxy-Authorization header, so instead of getting the content, we end 
up back at step 3.

Even when the header is explicitly set in Apache (RequestHeader set Proxy-
Authorization "Basic TEl34wRVNJkoFQm94QXBwMA==") it is still not sent to the 
external proxy.
