Subject [users@httpd] how 2 restrict access to a server to ONLY from/thru another redirected server?
Date Mon, 05 Sep 2005 22:25:49 GMT
hi all,

i've two boxes:

they are on different 'real' IPs on different subnets.

boxA has an Apache server, listening on port 80 as, that i neither 
control nor can configure ...

boxB runs an Apache server, listening on port XXXX as, that 
i fully control.

i've set up a PAGE REDIRECT at that points to

i'd like to RESTRICT ACCESS to boxB to ONLY those visitors that come from/thru 
the redirction ... i.e., direct connects to 
<> would be rejected.

also, i'd like to 'hide' the url/port from the average user 
... displaying only the 'identity'.

is this (1) possible, and (2) something that i should best control/restrict in 
Apache's config or .htaccess, or in html/php/etc/page source?

thx for any pointers!
