Subject [users@httpd] Can Apache 2.0 supply a Client Certifcate to remote server when acting as Reverse Proxy?
Date Wed, 11 Feb 2004 14:57:08 GMT
I'll try to keep this short!

We have Apache 2.0 set up as a Reverse Proxy as follows:

Browser ---SSL---> Apache Reverse Proxy ---SSL---> Remote server (IIS) 

So far so good it's SSL throughout the journey and this works fine.

The Remote Server wants to "Require" Client Certs but we don't want to
install Certs on the browser.
Instead we want Apache to supply the Client Cert to the Remote Server.

Can this be done? Has anyone done it? How?

SSLProxyMachineCertificateFile directive looks hopeful but so far we haven't
been able to get Apache to co-operate with the connection being refused by
the Remote Server with "Client Certificate Required".

Any ideas gratefully received.
