Subject [users@httpd] Apache Proxy for non-web protocols
Date Mon, 31 Oct 2011 15:32:49 GMT

I have searched all round for information on my query and asked a number of colleagues who
know Apache more then me and I'm still stuck!

Does anyone know if it is possible or not to get Apache to proxy non-web protocols please?

I've read that it can proxy http, ftp etc, but I want it to proxy protocols that it does not
know about.

I know there are other methods that will achieve proxying, like nc and iptables' port forwarding
etc, but I need some failover capability, so that if the proxy detects that host A is down,
it sends it onto host B instead.

If anybody has any ideas on this, please let me know.

Thanks in advance.
