We use Pound ( to do exactly that.

I believe apache can also load balance, but pound was so simple to setup for our environment
it seemed like the sensible choice. This way, we can leave apache to do what it does best,
and serve web pages.

Subject: [users@httpd] Apache as a Gateway

Hi All,
This is a more generic question.Is it possible to make Apache act as a getway.
At present we are using Foundry switch which nothing but acts as an VIP (Virtual IP) ,handles
all the client request from the internet.It does the load balancing and internally it routes
the requests  to some linux boxes. Is it possible to replace that foundry switch with Linux
Box  running Apache with mod_proxybalancer ?

Any help or suggestion would be great help.
Thanks in advance.
