Question about Apache proxy support and secure sites

Question about Apache proxy support and secure sites

Post by Tom William » Wed, 24 Nov 1999 04:00:00

Hi!  I'm currently using Apache 1.3.9 as a internal web server as well
as a proxy server and that all works fine.  The problem I'm having is
when I try to connect to a secure web page via the Apache proxy, the
connection simply times out and I can't get connected.  When I use the
SOCKS proxy running on the same box, it works just fine.

Do I need to compile anyhting else with Apache to get the proxy to
properly support secure sites?

Thanks in advance for your time.



P.S.  I'm running Apache 1.3.9 and socks5-v.1.0r10 both on Linux 2.0.38

1. No access to secure sites via proxy gateway.

I am a user witha  problem.

Our company admin claims that he is not able to determine
why employees can't access secure servers via proxy to a
firewall machine. If I log into the gateway direct (telnet)
and start netscape I can access all sites.

The admin sas it is a very low priority and he doesn't know
when he will have time to work it out.

Can someone direct me to information that will allow me to
try and work out a solution?
