Still not certain whether or not we need the XML and HTML modules.  Do we?


We have used the above - without XML and HTML - and have the reverse 
proxy running.  Testing will tell whether or not there are URL mapping 
issues ...


HOWEVER, we cannot get reverse proxy to work with SSL ?!?!

Port 80 works great, including redirecting.

Port 443 does NOT redirect.  NO SSL errors during startup.

Since, in principle reverse proxy solves our problem, there must be some 
technicality about introducing SSL into this system.  I thought SSL 
would only be an issue between browser and the web server to which the 
browser directly connects.  What am I missing?

Thank you.


If ever I can be of service to you; contact me at once.

I wish for you a truly extraordinary day ...
