Subject [users@httpd] Prevent remote access
Date Tue, 28 Oct 2003 14:28:01 GMT
Hi everybody,

I put my apache server behind a reverse-proxy and I
manage the anthentication through the reverse-proxy.
So I want to prevent direct connection to Apache.
I used a Location directive:
<Location />
    Order deny,allow
    Allow from @local_ip
    Deny from all

The problem is that I use Virtual Host. So if somebody
use a Location directive in the VH configuration:

<Location />
     Allow from all

the VH can now be reached directly !

Does anybody know if there a server directive to
prevent this for the whole server.

I can't install any firewall on this server...

Thanks for help
