Subject [users@httpd] Reverse proxy with authentication
Date Tue, 16 Sep 2003 17:41:41 GMT
I have an apache installation which is only doing a reverse proxy for an 
internal mail server.  I'm using the commands ProxyPass and ProxyPassReverse, 
and it works quite well.  I'd like to add basic authentication to this 
(username, password), but the proxying appears to happen before the auth 
commands, which seem to be directory based, kick in.

Is there a way around this to allow a reverse proxy with authentication, or 
do I need to go to mod_rewrite to get this to work?
