thank you for your answer. Unfortunately we want to have several machines behind the proxy.
So if i understood you correctly, mod_ssl is required for mod_proxy even though we _only_
want to forward specific requests like .. ?

domain:443/webmail --> webmail:443
domain:443/sharepoint --> sharepoint:443
domain:443/wiki --> wiki:443

The client should talk to the servers directly. according to the path /webmail or /sharepoint,
the decisions should be made by apache to which server the forward is made.

thank you in advance
