Subject RE: [users@httpd] Apache proxy server - in case of wrong credentials, getting 401 instead of 407
Date Thu, 17 Nov 2011 17:42:29 GMT

Hi,

I am trying to setup very basic forward proxy.
I have changed configuration file as follows:



LoadModule auth_digest_module
modules/mod_auth_digest.so

LoadModule proxy_module modules/mod_proxy.so

LoadModule proxy_http_module
modules/mod_proxy_http.so

LoadModule ssl_module modules/mod_ssl.so


ProxyRequests On
ProxyVia On

<Directory />
    AuthType Basic
    AuthDigestDomain /
    AuthDigestAlgorithm MD5
    AuthDigestNcCheck Off
    AuthName "WS Group@ipoffice"
    AuthUserFile C:/pwd.txt
    Require valid-user
</Directory>


I am still getting 401 instead of 407!
And generally, from the way it works, I do not think that server is configured as proxy

Do I miss anything?

Thank you,
Boris
