    The problem is that the extern server where i am redirecting the 
packets does not have the frontpage extentions installed, it only 
redirects the http packets to other server unavailable to the world. The 
log shows a packet with an author.exe that the frontpage uses to 
authoring the pages.

        I am trying to user a rewrite expression with mod proxy, 
something like this

        RewriteEngine On
        RewriteRule ^AUTHOR\.EXE* /dev/null [R,NC]
        RewriteLog "/var/log/httpd/rewrite.log"

         ServerAlias something
         ProxyPass /
         ProxyPassReverse /

        But it doesn't work, the rewrite.log doesn't show nothing, so i 
have the feeling that that the RewriteRule is not working. (And yes i 
have restarted the httpd :) )

        Any thoughts? Thks
