Your problem sounds like a simple config issue, but since you didn't 
show us your config, who knows ...

mod_proxy_* vs. mod_jk: mod_proxy_* comes automatically with httpd and 
is more tightly integrated into it, mod_jk is still more powerful 
especially concerning complex instance topologies. So your decision 
might depend on how complex you expect your final setup to be.
