Subject [users@httpd] Apache HTTPD 2.0 as OWA Proxy
Date Fri, 30 Jul 2004 16:08:23 GMT
This has been tackled a few times before, but I haven't found good
answers for what I want.  I've really plugged away at this for the past
3-4 days, searching google, but no such luck.  Here it goes.

Vital Stats:

Exchange 2000 (aka: mail-internal)
Apache HTTPD 2.0 (aka. mail)
Fedora Core 2.0

I've got an Outlook Web Access (OWA) server on my Intranet, which I want
to make available to the Internet through apache's proxy.

I want end-to-end encryption for users, so that the emails are always
encased in SSL.  The current behavior, is that when you go to
http://mail/ or https://mail/ it brings up the DocumentRoot location,
which is great.

When you try to log in via going to https://mail/exchange/  it brings up
the appropriate information in asking for credentials, looks like a SSL
connection is made, but I just get the OWA frames.  No data from within
the frames.  I looked at the source, and the source is referencing
http://mail-internal/... which is not the behavior I want, because
mail-internal is not accessible from the Internet, only from the proxy.
A DNS record for the "real world" doesn't even exist for mail-internal,
as it only lives in the /etc/hosts file on the Linux box.

My config file is attached, and I would grealy appreciate any assistance
from those more knowledgable in httpd than I
