Subject [users@httpd] Garbled UI With Reverse Proxy Server
Date Thu, 20 Sep 2007 13:48:15 GMT

I am facing the following problem of Garbled UI with REVERSE PROXY.

Setup Details:- An Apache/1.3.27(Win32) mod_ssl/2.8.12 OpenSSL/0.9.6d webserver listening
on port no 80 having a filter implemented on it, is running behind a Reverse proxy Apache/2.0.55
(Win32) webserver listening on port no 900. The Reverse proxy Apache/2.0.55 webserver is redirecting
every request to Apache/1.3.27(Win32). The configuration file of Reverse proxy Apache/2.0.55
webserver contains following two lines to redirect the requests to Apache/1.3.27(Win32) webserver.
  ProxyPass / http://ps2321:80/
  ProxyPassReverse / http://ps2321:80/
 Both Apache/1.3.27(Win32) and Reverse Proxy Apache/2.0.55 (Win32) are running on same window
machine ps2321
Filetr Implementation:-  Filetr forces the 302 response to any GET requets for a file residing
in a particular folder inside the server root htdocs. Filter sets the Content-lenght to 0
and Location to an another html file residing in htdocs. In addition to this, filter also
sets some browser cookies. For example, assume that there is a folder test10141 inside server
root htdocs. The folder test10141 contains a html file "test.html". There is one more html
file "formlogin.html" residing in htdocs. 
 Problem Description:- When we access the /test10141/test.html using host:port of Apache/1.3.27(Win32)
everything works fine and we can see the formlogin.html on browser. But when /test10141/test.html
is accessed using host:port of Reverse proxy server, Garbled UI is shown on the browser.
 Browser displays following message
