Subject [users@httpd] Using a proxy manually from a webbrowser?
Date Thu, 08 Nov 2007 07:31:10 GMT
Hi,

This may sound like a strange question, but I am
trying to use mod_proxy in a way which I have not yet
seen described anywhere.  What I would like to do is
accept connections on my webserver for certain URLs,
say:  

http://myapache.com/useproxy/website.com/webpage.html

where example myapache.com is my web server and
website.com/webpage.html is the http URL of some page
that I would like the user to be proxied to.  The
trick that makes my question different from a normal
ProxyPass setup is that I would like to chain the
request through a proxy server, say privoxy.  The end
result should be that the page returned by th
webserver (myapache.com) should actually be
http://website.com/webpage.html but the request has to
go through privoxy! 

The idea is that a user could make use of privoxy
running on my website without having to configure a
proxy in their browser (imagine that they already have
to use a proxy to get out of their corporate
firewall).  Then they could still benefit from using
privoxy by accessing it with my web server manually.

If there are any other ways of manually making use of
a proxy server from a browser without using the proxy
setting in a browser that would be a welcomed
alternative to what I am suggesting.

Thanks,

-Martin
