    apache reverse proxy authentication

    Hi All,

    I need an apache guru to help me please.
    I'm not sure what I want to do is possible.

    I have an internal website that I do not have control over.
    This internal website requires no authentication.
    I would like this website accessible to authorised users on the internet.
    I would like it so that URL's to this site are the same in the college, and outside of the college

    my plan:
    1) give the site an internal DNS address: internal.xxx.college.org.uk which points to the actual internal website
    2) create an external DNS record for internal.xxx.college.org.uk which now points to our regular webserver
    3) create a virtualhost on the regular school webserver for internal.xxx.college.org.uk - but not let this resolve in school.
    4) create a reverse proxy rule so that external users are mapped to the internal site
    5)create an ldap authentication on the vitrualhost

    can some one tell me if this is possible (and adjust my plan accordingly)

    thanks

    It should be possible, although the last time I did reverse proxy I gave up on apache and used squid ... Which does not help you.

    I would start of with simple .htaccess auth to get you started.
