Subject [BUG] ProxyPass / mod_rewrite and proxy auth
Date Fri, 14 Nov 1997 03:51:56 GMT
Setup proxy access restrictions requiring user authentication.

Setup a mapping from a local server to a remote server using ProxyPass or
mod_rewrite with the proxy.  Say map http://myserver/foo/ to
http://otherserver/bar/ using the proxy.

Make a request to http://myserver/foo/.  Apache will send a proxy auth
required to the client.  IE4 and Navigator 3&4 properly have no idea how
to handle the proxy auth request because they aren't using a proxy.

The fix?  Either don't require any auth for such things on the assumption
that the admin knows what they are doing and would put access restrictions
on /foo if they really wanted them or just send a normal auth request.
