Subject [users@httpd] Reverse Proxy will multiple IPs in same subnet
Date Fri, 28 Jan 2011 12:43:30 GMT

I'm setting up a reverse proxy with multiple IP addresses.

Multiple instances of apache listen on multiple IP addresses in the same 

My question is...

If a reverse proxy is setup to listen on eth0:1 with IP address

and eth0 is in the same subnet.

 From a firewall perspective, will the proxy request appear to come from or

route shows the following entry:

Destination    Gateway    Genmask    Flags    Metric    Ref    Use    Iface
default            gateway         UG         0             
0         0         eth0

So my guess is that the reverse proxy request will exit the proxy with, even if apache is listening on ???

Am I right??
