Subject RE: Apache reverse proxy x OWA authentication
Date Thu, 24 Oct 2002 14:30:36 GMT
We are having a similar problem and haven't solved it yet. I believe that
the backend OWA server needs to have the original Host: header requested by
the browser passed through. There's a proxy directive in Apache 2 called
ProxyPreserveHost which sounds like it might do just that.


There's also a tech. note on Microsoft's web site that mentions that an HTTP
header may have to be set, but it isn't clear whether this is required or


We tried to get end-to-end SSL working with reverse proxy and ran into
problems with Apache 1.3.26 (haven't tried with Apache 2 yet). Our backend
https connection must pass through a regular Apache 1.3.26 proxy (not a
reverse proxy) and this doesn't appear to be implemented. The ProxyRemote
method seems to malfunction for backend SSL connections. A direct (no
intermediary proxy) https backend connection does appear to work.

Subject: Apache reverse proxy x OWA authentication

  Hi all,

I configure an Apache with reverse proxy to an OWA (Exchange2K) in the 
internal network, but I have a problem with the authentication. When I 
receive the authentication box (from a external client), the basic realm 
shows the internal IP address from OWA, and the client try connect to 
this address. I find in to the Internet, but I didnt find any information.

Can you help me?

With best regards,
