Hi,

I see a lot of help available for people wanting to use Apache as a proxy server, but none for my problem. Here is the situation:

We have an intranet server which is behind a proxy server/firewall. This used to be fine since it is used for serving content generated solely by the intranet users. Now, this server needs to pull some RSS feeds off the public web, but can't since it needs to use a proxy server for external http requests. In Internet Explorer, all you need to do is specify a proxy server under "Connections", but how do I tell Apache that it needs to use a proxy for its own http requests to the outside web?

Thanks,

Hannes

Perhaps this could be of use?
http://httpd.apache..../mod_proxy.html
What is the CoronaMatrix?

Thanks, but not really :-(

I do not want Apache to act as a proxy server or firewall. I just want to make it aware that it has to make its own HTTP requests through the company proxy server. Hope this is clear enough.

Thanks,
