Subject ProxyBlock question
Date Mon, 23 Jul 2012 19:22:39 GMT
Short question: should ProxyBlock apply to the hostname from the request 
URI, or the hostname of the next hop?

Long question: the way ProxyBlock is documented does not make explicit 
that it is applied to the next hop; it would be natural to expect it is 
matched against the request URI hostname.  In this configuration:

   ProxyRequests on
   ProxyRemote * is the next hop, so it is "" which is 
checked against the ->noproxies list, and in that case would never 
match.  I'm struggling to think how that's useful... feature or bug?


a) if the current implementation is the desired behaviour, that needs to 
be clear in the docs, and mod_proxy_connect doesn't implement it 
correctly, but that's all simple enough to fix up.

b) if it's not the desired behaviour, that's a lot more messy.

Regards, Joe
