I have an Apache server that is running a web site and also providing a reverse proxy to a TomCat server.

I have added the Order/Allow/Deny lines to this section of the httpd.conf file

<Directory />
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride None

    Order deny,allow
    Deny from all
    Allow from 192.168.1.0/24
    Allow from 19.7.139.1
    Allow from 1.117.25.50
</Directory>

This is restricted access to all the sites on this server but I can still access the sites that are pointed to via the reverse proxy.  What do I need to do to have the reverse proxy sites filtered as well.

This is running on a Windows system.


Thanks.

You may try a <proxy> container like

<Proxy *>
    Order deny,allow
    Deny from all
    Allow from 192.168.1.0/24
    Allow from 19.7.139.1
    Allow from 1.117.25.50
</Proxy>

Or a <Location /> container like
<Location />
    Order deny,allow
    Deny from all
    Allow from 192.168.1.0/24
    Allow from 19.7.139.1
    Allow from 1.117.25.50
</Location>
