Subject [users@httpd] mod_proxy - Restrict Outgoing Connections
Date Sun, 17 Oct 2010 19:44:36 GMT
Hi HTTPD Users,

I'm using Apache 2.2 on Debian (Kernel 2.6) as a proxy for my web 
applications .

So far I got it all working, including SSL and stuff. But when I had a 
look at the access.log, I saw hundreds of (mostly GET) requests to URL 
which are not mine.

I'm not really sure what this means, but I think some bots are using the 
proxy to access other sites. Can that be?

I turned

ProxyRequests Off

<Proxy *>
      Order deny,allow
      Allow from all

With Allow/Deny from all, I can only restrict who can request the proxy, 
but I need to restrict the proxy to only forward request to localhost.

Do I've to do that with iptables or is it possible within Apache?
