Apache proxy?

Post by gina » Wed, 19 Jun 2002 02:41:02

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I understand that it is possible
to set up an "Apache proxy" to connect an HTTP client to an HTTPS
server.  Is this true?

If so, I would like to install Apache in my home directory.  What
configuration issues should I pay attention to if I want to set up
such a proxy?

Also, where can I find documentation on setting up an Apache proxy?

BTW, is there an Apache mailing list?  (I went to the Jakarta site,
but I was not able to find any mailing list devoted to the Apache



P.S. The context for the post above is the following.  Elsewhere I

1. Apache proxy to Netscape proxy

I have a software application that can use a proxy server without username/
password authentication.  My company's proxy server requires username/
password, so this software package doesn't work through Netscape's proxy

Has anyone chained the Apache proxy server through a Netscape proxy
server, while adding a username/password field?  Granted, I would probably
have to have a fixed username and password in the Apache configuration, but
that's not a problem.

Any ideas?  Thanks-
