Subject Re: [users@httpd] ProxyPass - mod_proxy
Date Wed, 25 Nov 2009 17:51:52 GMT
This is what I am doing and an example of my configuration

I am trying to configure mod_proxy. I want Apache to be the proxy server.
is a client x which talks to Apache and Apache in turn passes on this
request to other client y. The client y responds to Apache and in turn
should send the response to client x.
Suppose, client y runs on port 9999 and client y and apache are on the same host.

I configured the httpd.conf like this:

<IfModule mod_proxy.c>
ProxyRequests Off

ProxyPass / http://localhost:9999/
ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:9999/

when the client x tries to connect client y thru Apache it doesnt not
get a response. client x says No response from the server.

Can somebody please help me configure the httpd.

I dont know whether i should configure this as forward or reverse proxy. Please help.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks & Regards,

"It doesn't work" is useless. If you want help, explain what you tried, what happens when
you try that, and provide your configuration and logs.

Otherwise, the only response anyone can give is "It works just fine for me".
