client y is a http server but i dont want to expose client y to client x.

I am new to this Apache httpd server so I dont know whether it should be configured as a forward
proxy or reverse proxy. Right now i am configuring it as reverse proxy but it doesnt work.

Please help.

Thanks & Regards,

it does not matter. The point is that Apache will forward a HTTP *request* to the "client
y", and expect it to act like a HTTP server.
Unless your "client y" is really a HTTP server, it will not work.

And if your "client y" is really a HTTP server, then why don't you have client x talk directly
to client y ?
