Subject Re: [users@httpd] Virtual/Proxy setup to internal webserver

Will do.

I just shut my local forum host off to see what the www.mydomain.com
would return as an
error message when the forum link was clicked. I got no error, and the
"waiting for forum.mydoamin.com"
was displayed in the status

Are there any traps I can set in the httpd.conf file or within the
<VirtualHost> tags?

You know how it goes...there's always one more thing. I'll read up on
the <VirtualHost> docs.
