DevShed: Using Apache As A Proxy Server




This Developer Shed article talks about HTTP proxying,
getting started with Apache, configuring for proxy,
setting up proxy in http client,
filtering and rejecting requests, caching, and more.
(Examples tested on Linux/i686 with Apache 1.3 and Apache 2.0.)


The cool thing about Apache, though, is that it’s not just a Web server. It can do lots of other things too – and of its more interesting (though less well-known) capabilities includes the ability to act as a proxy server for both HTTP and FTP connections over a network.
