Subject Re: Can a proxied httpd be combined with name-based virutal hosting?
Date Fri, 10 May 2002 17:10:27 GMT
Hi Jonathan,

  I am not sure this would be doable with Name-based virtual hosting,
but a possible solution is to configure IP based virtual hosting on the
users' servers such that each host uses the same IP address, but a
different port: i.e., <VirtualHost 10.x.x.x:8080></VirtualHost> and
<VirtualHost 10.x.x.x:8081></VirtualHost>.  Also add the Listen
directive for Apache to listen to the new port.  On the proxy server,
you configure a new redirect to the new port on the user's machine.

seems like the proxying is filtering out the URL, so that the individual httpds never have
a chance to figure out where exactly the request is being made too.
