Subject [users@httpd] V 2.0.43 ProxyRemote directive - seems to be ignored
Date Thu, 21 Nov 2002 00:40:38 GMT
I am trying to use Apache's (version 2.0.43) ProxyRemote to accept requests 
on port 80 and forward them to port 8080 where another server is 
listening.  However, I cannot seem to get Apache to take any notice of the 
ProxyRemote directive.

As a test straight out of the documentation (just to see if I could get 
anything at all to work, and not to solve the real problem) I added the 

         ProxyRemote *

with the intent that all requests to my site instead go to Google.

In addition, I ensured that:

         LoadModule proxy_module modules/

was uncommented, and that in the section near the end where it says 
"uncomment to enable the proxy server" I have:

         <IfModule mod_proxy.c>
         ProxyRequests On

         <Proxy *>
             Order deny,allow
         #    Deny from all  -- commented out
             Allow from all
         ProxyRemote *
         ProxyPass /foo
         ProxyPassReverse /foo

The last three lines show the ProxyRemote (which seems to have no effect) 
and a ProxyPass(Reverse) pair which I tried as an experiment (which worked).

I am new to Apache, and may have missed something obvious.  I am performing 
these tests on MS XP with a fresh Apache installation. Would someone tell 
me where I should be looking, please?

Thanks for your consideration,
