URL Redirection not happening with Apache Reverse Proxy in RHEL6

Hi Experts,

I'm trying to configure my Apache in RHEL6 as a Reverse Proxy. I configured my Reverse Proxy (RP) to forward the request to the Internel Webserver.

Client ---> Reverse Proxy (> Internal Web Server (
Reverse Proxy - 172.31.5.x
Internal Web Server - 10.18.2.x

When users are browsing, he/she actually being redirected to This is working fine with the below configuration in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf in my Proxy server:
ProxyPreserveHost On
ProxyRequests off
<Proxy *>
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
SSLProxyEngine On
RequestHeader set Front-End-Https "On"
ProxyPass /
ProxyPassReverse /

Now I'm stuck when I'm trying to acheive the below thing:

Users will access and he/she will be redirected to

Everytime I try to access, I end up with the below error:

[Thu Feb 28 18:55:11 2013] [error] [client 172.31.3.x] File does not exist: /var/www/html/dsview

The confguration what I put in httpd.conf in Proxy Server is (after googling for 2 days):

ProxyRequests Off

# Redirect HTTP requests to HTTPS
<VirtualHost 172.31.5.x:80>
Redirect /

<VirtualHost 172.31.5.x:443>
ErrorLog /var/log/httpd/dsview_error_log
TransferLog /var/log/httpd/dsview_access_log
ProxyPreserveHost On
ProxyPass /dsview/
ProxyPassReverse /dsview/
SSLEngine On
SSLProxyEngine On
RequestHeader set Front-End-Https "On"
SSLCertificateFile /etc/pki/tls/certs/proxy
SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/pki/tls/private/proxy
Firewall port 80 and 443 is open between proxy and internal web server.
I've the below hosts file entry in Proxy server:

172.31.5.x proxy

Please note self signed certificate is also generated and working properly.

When I'm accessing, it is not redirecting at all and ending up with : 404 File not found
and error log showing: [Thu Feb 28 18:55:11 2013] [error] [client 172.31.3.x] File does not exist: /var/www/html/dsview

I'm completely stuck here. Any suggestion will be of great help.

Thanks in advance.

you are requesting "/dsview" but redirecting "/dsview" these are NOT the same thing! remove the end slash from the ProxyPass directive.
