Subject [users@httpd] Proxy Times Out
Date Thu, 14 Feb 2013 14:30:37 GMT
Apache 2.12.x in sles11 sp2. I am trying to give clients access to the mail server on port
443 by using a rewrite rule. The rule:

Rewriteengine on
Rewritecond %{HTTPS_HOST} ^mail\.
Rewritecond %{HTTPS} on
Rewriterule ^/(.*)$1 [P]

[Error] The error log on the apache server:
(110)connection timed out: proxy: HTTPS: attempt to connect to (*) failed

This error appears 4 times. Our firewall gives a handshake timeout from the apache server
( to the mail server ( There is a any (source) any (destination)
any (service) rule on the firewall so this should pass the traffic. To further verify the
rule/firewall is working, a proxypass statement works fine which passes traffic from

Again, we want clients to access our web mail server using https://mail.domain.tld. That address
points to our apache server which should pass said traffic to the mail setver. Maybe the rule
is not correct? Maybe this needs to be a proxypass statement (not sure how to write a proxypass
for sub domain)? Thanks for any help.
