Subject Re: [users@httpd] retreiving a document on another server
Date Wed, 07 Jul 2004 23:06:13 GMT

My my servers are win2k too. I do it like this:

I map the shared disk/folder to a drive letter and then have the following
section in httpd.conf:

Alias /dirname/ "M:/"
<Directory "M:/">
     Options Indexes MultiViews
     AllowOverride None
     Order allow,deny
     Allow from all

All the best

  Subject: [users@httpd] retreiving a document on another server

  I need to access .doc on a remote server and the service ID that Apache2 uses has access
to the shares.  Can I get the server to retrieve the file and serve it as a word doc the the
end users?

  I've tried:
  ProxyPass /mirror/foo \\crprchfnp05\e2e monitoring east\Midrange Operations\MIDOPS\something.doc

  and this:
  Alias /mirror/foo \\crprchfnp05\e2e monitoring east\Midrange Operations\MIDOPS\something.doc

  both server are W2k, thus i need the back slashes.  

  I need the server to proxy pass the file because only the server id has access to the share.
