Subject RE: [Patch] ProxyAllow Feature for 1.3 series.
Date Mon, 23 Oct 2000 02:08:13 GMT
The access-control directives only control who can access the proxy server
not what the proxy server itself can access.  Stated another way, the access
control directives are for client access, not destination access.  The
intention of the ProxyAllow directive is to allow Apache to be used in kiosk
environments (research libraries, schools, etc) where access to only
specific websites is wanted.

I think this can be accomplished with:

<Directory proxy:>
access-control directives
</Directory
