Subject [users@httpd] trying to use mod_proxy with a sso
Date Mon, 19 Dec 2005 18:01:15 GMT

After looking for an answer in the archives, I'll try asking here.

I'm currently managing a three servers set up : A sso server, a reverse 
proxy front end and a http backend.

Basically, i'm trying to have things like this work :

proxy.domain/public_app -> proxy -> backend.local/private_app -> calls 
sso -> sso.domain/auth -> redirects to public_app ->proxy.domain/public_app
(the names of the application folders aren't the same).

It works pretty fine, except that the SSO only use the X-Forwarded-for 
header to redirects the user to the right server. Problem is that it 
redirects the user to proxy_server/private_app instead of 

Using the same names for private and public app names isn't a solution, 
and I would like to know which header sent to/received by the backend 
server will give me the part after *proxy.domain/* so that I can tweak 
this particular sso implementation to suits my needs.

Thanks by advance,
