Subject Re: [users@httpd] ProxyPass/ProxyPassreverse shared cookies?
Date Wed, 28 May 2008 11:48:55 GMT
Okay since im not drowning in solutions for using mod proxy. I'll try to 
use mod jk. But before  I do so I have the following question:

How do I setup Apache HTTP to only forward to certain parts of tomcat, 
depending on incomming network. Currently I have 2 application, which 
needs to share a cookie these two show be available from out side using 
the following mapping:
{pseudo syntax}  /tomcat/appA /tomcat/appB

But for some of the administrative tasks I have some admin 
applications(tomcat defaults), these I do not want to be available from 
the but only via the internal ip address.

how do I do this?

Thanks in advance..
