Subject [users@httpd] apache reverse proxy fails with ssl
Date Sat, 15 Jan 2005 03:11:07 GMT
Hello Group,

I got a problem I seem to be unable to solve on my own. 
I have a java-based control system running on Tomcat. 
I use Apache 2.0.52 as reverse proxy on solaris 10, connection to the java server via mod_proxy
(config see below). I need a HTTP connection from the outside to the reverse proxy and HTTPs
 from the apache proxy to the java server: 
When I try to connect to the Tomacat server through the intermediate apache server I get the
following error in the logs

+-------+   HTTP  +--------+-----------+   SSL    +--------+
| I'net | <-----> |mod_proxy | mod_ssl | <------> | Tomcat |
+-------+         +--------|-----------+          +--------+
