Subject [users@httpd] proxyblock * help needed...
Date Wed, 12 Feb 2003 21:25:05 GMT
I'm planning a configuration of an Apache Proxy server (forward proxy).

Essentially I want to block client access to "everything external" accept a few scrictly defined
hosts (this is business definition).

So... allowing only "known" clients to use the proxy

<Proxy *>
Order Deny,Allow
Deny from all
Allow from 192.168.0

Then apply at the server config

ProxyBlock *

to block connections to all sites. Now how to I open the proxy to the allowed hosts? My guess
is to negate the arguments to ProxyBlock but there does not seem to be documentation on this.

TIA, and Warmest Regards,
