   Aha - the penny is starting to fall.  So with proxy_ftp, I shouldn't
have apache *listening* on port 21 at all - I need a std virt host
container called (eg) ftp.blah which then proxies thru to the FTP machine?

Sorry to keep pounding on this - but what proxy lines would u use to make
that happen?  The doco in this area is still pretty sparse.  Would we use
proxypass or what?
