Subject Re: [users@httpd] using protocols other than http
Date Fri, 20 Aug 2010 06:16:31 GMT
 I am looking for a How to so that I can use that and use Apache as a proxy to 
other protocols.
I believe as you make Apache so you must be having a how to some where my search 
results did not gave me desired results.
Hence I asked this question.
I am not re hashing any thing I had a doubt since some one told that you do not 
have a how to it is just a technical reference more over I am not able to 
understand from the docs which you pointed.So I wanted a working example if I 
could read and make things work on my server.
