Subject RE: [users@httpd] help work with Proxy pass option

I am not sure I understood all of that, but...
When it comes to the yahoomail stuff, the reason you get redirected to is
that you are missing the ProxyPassReverse directive.
ProxyPassReverse /
However, I am not quite sure that what you actually want is a REVERSE proxy. You may just
want a plain old proxy.

In that case you need something like:

    ProxyRequests On
    <Proxy *>
        Order Allow,Deny
        Allow from all

In addition to this, you need to configure your browser to point to the proxy.

=== ==========

I want to build my apache as gateway server. the end user can assess the external domain like , <>   <>
, through my apache gateway server.

Browser <====> My gateway server ::8080 <==> external domain

1. I established the connection to my gateway server http://gatewayserver:8080 <https://localhost:8080/>

Here my question is which is the best way to redirect the request to the external domain through
my apache server? and how?

I am not sure is it possible way to transfer the request
a. the requested external domain url as pass as the url string string like http://localhost:8080/

I configured 
ProxyPass / http://
It works.

The targeted url refer the background image with respect to relative url like
 background="images/bg.gif". So that i can't able to retriew it by http://localhost:8080/
<https://localhost:8080/> .
If I access the url directly The backgroung image retriewed and it shows fine.

Please help me to resolve the problem....and Please suggest if u have any sample for gateway
