Subject Re: [users@httpd] Proxy Issues

Hello Matthew,

You can use both forward proxy and reverse proxy configuration for your 
problem. In reverse proxy configuration server B pretends to be server 
Z, therefore the following command should be used from any server:
$ curl http://server-b.proxy
This is what you seem to have configured now. However, there might be 
issues with URLs returned by server Z pointing to server-z.com, not to 
server-b.proxy (and subsequent requests get lost).

The command you specified first (curl --proxy ...) is for normal 
(forward) proxy, which is not your current configuration. Forward proxy 
is preferable if you don't want to deal with incorrect URLs.
