Subject Re: [users@httpd] Some basic (idiotic) queries regarding tunnelling-proxy
Date Fri, 24 Mar 2017 04:44:23 GMT
Hi All.

I could have the proxying to work perfectly, using the awesome step-by-step
link at
https://devops.profitbricks.com/tutorials/configure-apache-as-a-reverse-proxy-using-mod_proxy-on-ubuntu/.
Whenever I opened a URL of type http://Intermediatary/path/to/url in
*Server*'s browser, the contents of page http://HTTP-Server/path/to/url
opened up.

Still, this requires the *Intermediatary* to have a public static
IP-Address.
Can this be done away with?

Will be grateful for any replies.


Thanks and Regards,
Ajay
