I have a question to let HTTP Proxy requests via a proxy.
Here is the situation: - I am connected from home to a VPN of my company. - The VPN has a proxy server, which I have configured and it works correctly. I can reach all internal company URL's now.
Now I have the situation that Apache needs to retrieve a URL as well, via that same proxy. And that is where it goes wrong. The request times out. From the browser I can reach that internal URL fine, because the browser is using the proxy for its requests.
So how can I set up Apache to use a proxy?
Please note, I am not asking how to get ProxyPass working, but I am trying to make this work:
<Location /shared_resources_url/> ProxyPass http://www.internalcompanyserver.com/shared_resources_url/ ProxyPassReverse http://www.internalcompanyserver.com/shared_resources_url/ </Location>
So, Apache needs to reach the internalcompanyserver.com . How do I configure Apache to use the company proxy?
I tried Googling this one of course, but I get a lot of results about ProxyPass, not about actually letting Apache connect through a proxy first.
I hope somebody understands what my question is and can help me out! :)
