Proxy functionality in the Apache Web Server.  I only have the one 
system.  This is a small operation despite the /26 allocation.

Anyway, I now have the basic proxying working.  See my previous note.  It 
is appalling how many GETs there are to access!

Also I believe the proxy limiting to my address range also stops the POST 
SMTP proxies: - - [26/Mar/2003:23:40:06 -0500] "CONNECT HTTP/1.0" 403 309

But I am still concerned that someone might find a way to use one of my IP 
addresses to do the POST SMTP, and would like to figure out why

<Directory proxy *>
         <LimitExcept GET HEAD POST>
         Order deny,allow
         Deny from all

is bad syntax and if this is the right syntax....
