Subject RE: Problem with proxy in Apache 2.0.35 and Windows 2000 Server
Date Tue, 23 Apr 2002 16:48:45 GMT

  I found the answer to my problem. I was going to send a bug report,
but before doing so I looked in the bug database, and I saw that Pascal
Barbedor had the same problem. Cliff Woolley pointed out in a comment to
his bug report that he should also load the new, and/or modules. So I did, and it

  I just wanted to send this just in case someone had the same problem.
I would also like to point out that it would be interesting to note in
the 2.0 version changes that now those modules are necessary for proxy

  Thank you,

					Igor Leturia
