So.....I have a question then about configuring Reverse Proxy....

Two questions really.....

#1 -  In the "Proxy Requests to Remote Servers" area of the configuration
page in HTTP *ADMIN.....there are three fields:    Request Type;  Local
Virtual Path; Remote Server URL;

 I can figure out Request Type;  and Remote Server URL;    However, I am not
sure what to put in the "Local Virtual Path" field.  If my IP address to
this server was   and I wanted to point to    what would I put into these fields?

#2 - Because I have Reverse Proxy running on one HTTP Server, do I ALSO need
Forward Proxy enabled on the remote HTTP Server?  I'm thinking NOT...but
thought I'd ask.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Shannon,

a "reverse proxy" could make your life a lot easier. Without giving up
anything; contrary, you might win additional security.

That would be Apache running on the third partition acting as reverse
proxy for the production HTTP server running on the second partition.

Then you have the HTTP server on your production machine, which makes
life a lot easier.

And you can take advantage of Apache's caching.

See the draft redbook SG246716 "HTTP Server (powered by Apache)" at
(download the pdf)

You can set up this on the very same machine as well as on two
different partitions / machines. So you could start today.

Mit freundlichen Grüssen / best regards
