Subject [users@httpd] Proxy HTTPS tunneling
Date Tue, 11 Feb 2014 12:51:09 GMT

WE are trying to setup  HTTPS tunnelling to a backend server through Apache proxy  but we
are finding the client connect but Apache does not send through the traffic the backend server.

The config we have on our Apache proxy  virtual host  is


DocumentRoot "/usr/local/apache2221/htdocs/ibcm/"
ServerName test.testdom.local
ErrorLog logs/ibcm
ServerAdmin webmaster@testdom.local
ProxyRequests On
AllowConnect 443
SSLEngine on
SSLHonorCipherOrder On
SSLProtocol -ALL +SSLv3 +TLSv1

SSLCertificateFile "/etc/ssl/crt/ibcm.crt"

SSLCertificateKeyFile "/etc/ssl/crt/testdom.key"

SSLCertificateChainFile "/etc/ssl/crt/CA-DOM.crt"

<proxy *>
   Order deny,allow
   Deny from all

<ProxyMatch (|>
   Order deny,allow
   Allow from all

Anybody know what we are not doing correctly.   Also we found Apache would not start without
us putting in the root certificate. Thought it would not need any certificate for tunnelling
 so wonder if we have missed something.
