I can dig it.  I just wanted to provide as much info on what I'd done
so as to best illustrate where I was.  I, personally, go insane when someone
asks a question, but doesn't give any info. :)

I think I grok what you're saying.  I'm trying to do this using hostnames,
but I should be able to pull it off using virtual folders?  So, to access
the home automation server, for example, instead of using, I should be using  I can
live with that as an alternative.

I don't think my wife would consider that an option. :)  I wish I had a more
direct question to ask.  The problem I've run into is the info's spread over
so many locations.  Heck, it's not even right in too many places (for
how I used the ProxyPass statements is taken right from the documentation.
And, as for compliling in proxy?  It took me many a guess to finally find I
had to do ./configure --enable-mods-shared="all proxy_module
proxy_connect_module etc" nothing else would work).  That's not to say the
docs are bad, they can just be quite a bit daunting. :)
