proxy + HTTP/1.1

proxy + HTTP/1.1

Post by db » Sat, 24 Jun 2000 04:00:00

I need an authenticating proxy that allows the proxied server to also
authenticate users.  As far as I can tell, this is supported in HTTP 1.1
with the Proxy-Authenticate header (and the 407 Proxy Authentication
Required error), but the apache proxy only supports HTTP 1.0.

Does support for this feature exist anywhere?  I've looked at squid but
it doesn't handle incoming SSL responses (also a requirement).

1. apache http proxy - http/1.0 vs http/1.1


I have setup an apache proxy, which seems to work fine. But, I found
out that it doesn't not answer back http/1.1 with a http/1.1 response.
The request comes in as 1.1, but the proxy answer back with 1.0. Is
there some special configuration I need to set in httpd.conf for it
to answer with a 1.1 response?

When I send traffic to the backend machine it will answer with a 1.1
response just fine. We are using the same version of apache for both
the proxy and actual backend server.

Any hints as to what I'm missing? Thanks.
