  +SSL uses port 443 for requests for secure pages. If your browser just
  +sits there for a long time when you attempt to access a secure page
  +over your Apache proxy, then the proxy may not be configured to handle
  +SSL. You need to instruct Apache to listen on port 443 in addition to
  +any of the ports on which it is already listening:
  +    Listen 80
  +    Listen 443
  +Then set the security proxy in your browser to 443. That might be it!
  +If your proxy is sending requests to another proxy, then you may have
  +to set the directive ProxyRemote differently. Here are my settings:
  +    ProxyRemote http://nicklas:80/
  +    ProxyRemote http://nicklas:443/
  +Requests on port 80 of my proxy <SAMP>nicklas</SAMP> are forwarded to
  +proxy<SAMP></SAMP>, while requests on port 443 are
  +forwarded to <SAMP></SAMP>.
  +If the remote proxy is not set up to
  +handle port 443, then the last directive can be left out. SSL requests
  +will only go over the first proxy.
  +Note that your Apache does NOT have to be set up to serve secure pages
  +with SSL. Proxying SSL is a different thing from using it.
