Subject [users@httpd] Authentication problems with reverse + forward proxy
Date Mon, 02 Apr 2007 00:17:53 GMT
I'm sure this issue has been covered before, but I'm afraid my extensive
research has turned up only posts by users with the same problem with no
accompanying solution.
What I want do is configure a reverse proxy for use with an existing
authenticating forward proxy.  The latter is beyond my control.  I've
added the following lines to my config:
    ProxyRequests On
    ProxyRemote * http://existing.forward.proxy:8080 
Accessing a URL reverse proxied by my server results in an "Access
Denied (authentication_failed)".  Can anyone recommend the correct
method for addressing this problem.
Kind regards,
