Subject [users@httpd] problem with reverseproxy and double-authentication
Date Wed, 28 Apr 2004 13:08:24 GMT

I have apache on our gateway setup to provide a specific part from our 
intranet to the outside. I did so using mod_proxy in reverse mode.

Now I set up (for double security) a authentication on the gateway and 
the proxied intranetapplication wants a password to.

This seems to irritate apache very much.

on the gateway:

<VirtualHost x.x.x.x:80>
   VirtualDocumentRoot /data/apache
   VirtualScriptAlias /data/apache/cgi-bin

ProxyPass      /fff
ProxyPassReverse /fff

   <Proxy *>
     Order allow,deny
     Satisfy Any
     Allow from all
     AuthName "test"
     AuthType Basic
     AuthUserFile /usr/local/apache2/conf/proxy.pass
     require user test


When I access

I'm first asked for the username/password for zone "test" and when I 
provide this correct then I get asked for username/password for zone 
"zope" which comes from the intranetapplication (I dont have access to 
it or its userdb) and then I'm kicked out, cause I cant be authenticated.

As soon as I remove the Auth on the gateway everything works fine, but 
I've got only one auth instead of the two I want. (I dont fully trust 
the auth of the intranet-application and vice versa :)
