Apache Proxy Relay


Hi All,

We are setup a Apache server as a proxy redirect to Websphere and reverse proxy for IIS server.

Now, we found somebodies are using our Apache server as a proxy server to access other sites. Do you know if it is possible to restrict this kind of access? It would be nice if we only allow users to use the proxy to access the IIS machine and no other sites.

Can someone give me advice? Thanks!

I see four possible solutions.
1. proxypass: rewrite the URI as "proxypass / http://address_of_webshphere",
2. basic authentication,
3. a blocking directive in Apache the usual "allow/deny from all, allow from Y" way,
4. a blocking rule in the firewall for addresses not in range Y


Proxypass should restrict people so they can't specify another URI but will be directed to http://address_of_webshphere (dunno if this works or syntactically ok: check). I don't think I need to elaborate on basic auth. IMO you should use 1 or/and 2 in conjunction with 3 or/and 4. The only "problem" with 3 or 4 is that you need your clients to be within IP ranges you can identify.
