Angry Mod_Proxy (Apache) won't forward requests

Good morning,
I have a netowrk setup with a web server inside a firewall. The web server has an ipaddress of I have another server with some php pages with an ip address of

I am trying to use mod_proxy to send request to that server. I have virtual hosts set up. This is what I have in the virtual hosts directive:

ProxyRequests On
ProxyRemote *

I have the other web server entry in the hosts file on the Linux server. Does a ProxyPass/ProxyPassReverse need to be added. I know virtual hosts is working becuase I have other virtual hosts on the server and they are all working.
Any help would be appreciated.

I think I got it. Further reading suggests that I may in fact have to put in ProxyPass. like this:

ProxyPass / http://localhost:80/VirtualHostBase/...rtualHostRoot/
ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:80/VirtualHostBase/...rtualHostRoot/
