Subject [users@httpd] Open Proxy
Date Tue, 07 Feb 2006 00:54:08 GMT
Can anyone help me secure my Apache proxy server. Here is the problem.
The box that I have on the net is NOT behind a firewall. It has one NIC with
a external IP.
<Directory proxy:*>
Order deny,allow
Deny from all
Allow from

That is the mod_proxy configuration I have in place, I THOUGHT this might
prevent people on the net from pointing their browsers to my proxy and
surfing freely, but it has not. The ultimate goal I have is to just have it
so that when I'm ssh'd into my box that only I can use the proxy and not
have it wide open.
I dont' know if I can close this up or not?
