Subject proxypass, ssl authentication
Date Tue, 23 Apr 2002 19:14:49 GMT


I am having an interesting time trying to get ssl and apache mod_proxy
to work correctly with a another webserver behind our firewall.  Let
me begin by outlining my goal, and maybe that will bring to light
where my brokenness is.

We have one external webserver which uses ssl and authenticates our
users based on NIS.  This works fine for all the local served files.  We
recently added another server behind the firewall which is serving up
straight http.  I already have proxypass stuff working and accessing
the url at https://server/proxy brings up the correct data, but it
never asks for a username/password.  By changing some Location and
Directory directives inside apache I managed to return a 
407 Proxy Authentication Required error.  

This seems like a simple (and common) enough problem that I must be
missing something.  I don't need to proxy any authentication requests
to the internal server, simply make the URL space one single
authentication area.

If you need more data like current configs, let me know.

Any help or pointers to specific docs would be greatly appreciated.
