Smile a good reverseproxy mod_proxy implementation

hi guys,

im currently researching on how to use the mod_proxy as a reverseproxy server. coz im planning to use it as a part of my system.

ill be needing some advice on you guys to set this =)

my plan is to setup a reverse proxy which will acts as a real server for A, B and C server.

Server A
client A \________{internet}_______> (reverse proxy)___/_ Server B
client B / {internet} \
Server C

Server A, B and C are not allowed to be seen from the internet directly, only Reverse Proxy server is allowed to view it.

The Proxy server will accept all requests from the internet and forward the request to the 3 real server on either A, B and C server. (depends on the Vhost called)

When A, B or C server replies to the request it forwards the reply to the reverse proxy, then the reverse proxy forward it to the
client on the internet.

** My goal is to secure the 3 Servers internally, and for ReverseProxy to take all the request from the internet. (To hide the real servers from the internet, for security)

Im also using rewriteurl and alias on this, also for security reason.

I also have some Question regarding this setup:

1) Is this possible?
2) Is it possible to use a VirtualHost, mod_proxy and mod_rewrite in proxy server (httpd.conf) setting to do this?
3) Guys can you give me advice on this, especially on how can i implement this on my system, your suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
