currently have iis running a web server 2003 hosting multiple domains one ip address. using header options to breakup the various names. that works fine. i would like to add an apache server on the same box and use apache to reverse proxy to the other domains. i have a box i can test this all on so i'm not worried about breaking anything. i also have 2 other domain names to point to my test box to try this.

currently on the test box both iis and apache work. apache on port 80. iis on port 81. what do i need to change in apache for reverse proxy as i am not getting anywhere with what i find here. everything i have found is for far more complex scenarios.

apache will run 1 site. 3 other sites will run on iis. any help would be great.

first have of the code is apache conf 2nd is apache virtual host conf

any help greatly appreciated. if i'm missing something please let me know.
*********************httpd.conf file***********************************

# This is the main Apache HTTP server configuration file.  It contains the

# configuration directives that give the server its instructions.

# See <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/> for detailed information.

# In particular, see 

# <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/directives.html>

# for a discussion of each configuration directive.

#

# Do NOT simply read the instructions in here without understanding

# what they do.  They're here only as hints or reminders.  If you are unsure

# consult the online docs. You have been warned.  

#

# Configuration and logfile names: If the filenames you specify for many

# of the server's control files begin with "/" (or "drive:/" for Win32), the

# server will use that explicit path.  If the filenames do *not* begin

# with "/", the value of ServerRoot is prepended -- so "logs/foo.log"

# with ServerRoot set to "C:/xampp/apache" will be interpreted by the

# server as "C:/xampp/apache/logs/foo.log".

#

# NOTE: Where filenames are specified, you must use forward slashes

# instead of backslashes (e.g., "c:/apache" instead of "c:\apache").

# If a drive letter is omitted, the drive on which Apache.exe is located

# will be used by default.  It is recommended that you always supply

# an explicit drive letter in absolute paths, however, to avoid

# confusion.

#
 

# ThreadsPerChild: constant number of worker threads in the server process

# MaxRequestsPerChild: maximum  number of requests a server process serves

ThreadsPerChild 250

MaxRequestsPerChild  0
 

#

# ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's

# configuration, error, and log files are kept.

#

# Do not add a slash at the end of the directory path.  If you point

# ServerRoot at a non-local disk, be sure to point the LockFile directive

# at a local disk.  If you wish to share the same ServerRoot for multiple

# httpd daemons, you will need to change at least LockFile and PidFile.

#

ServerRoot "C:/xampp/apache"
 

#

# Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or

# ports, instead of the default. See also the <VirtualHost>

# directive.

#

# Change this to Listen on specific IP addresses as shown below to 

# prevent Apache from glomming onto all bound IP addresses (0.0.0.0)

#

#Listen 12.34.56.78:80

Listen 80

    # Alias /webpath /full/filesystem/path

    #

# 

# Apache parses all CGI scripts for the shebang line by default.

# This comment line, the first line of the script, consists of the symbols

# pound (#) and exclamation (!) followed by the path of the program that 

# can execute this specific script.  For a perl script, with perl.exe in

# the C:\Program Files\Perl directory, the shebang line should be:
 

   #!c:/program files/perl/perl
 

# Note you _must_not_ indent the actual shebang line, and it must be the

# first line of the file.  Of course, CGI processing must be enabled by 

# the appropriate ScriptAlias or Options ExecCGI directives for the files 

# or directory in question.

#

# However, Apache on Windows allows either the Unix behavior above, or can

# use the Registry to match files by extention.  The command to execute 

# a file of this type is retrieved from the registry by the same method as 

# the Windows Explorer would use to handle double-clicking on a file.

# These script actions can be configured from the Windows Explorer View menu, 

# 'Folder Options', and reviewing the 'File Types' tab.  Clicking the Edit

# button allows you to modify the Actions, of which Apache 1.3 attempts to

# perform the 'Open' Action, and failing that it will try the shebang line.

# This behavior is subject to change in Apache release 2.0.

#

# Each mechanism has it's own specific security weaknesses, from the means

# to run a program you didn't intend the website owner to invoke, and the

# best method is a matter of great debate.

#

# To enable the this Windows specific behavior (and therefore -disable- the

# equivilant Unix behavior), uncomment the following directive:

#

#ScriptInterpreterSource registry

#

# The directive above can be placed in individual <Directory> blocks or the

# .htaccess file, with either the 'registry' (Windows behavior) or 'script' 

# (Unix behavior) option, and will override this server default option.

#
 

#

# DefaultType: the default MIME type the server will use for a document

# if it cannot otherwise determine one, such as from filename extensions.

# If your server contains mostly text or HTML documents, "text/plain" is

# a good value.  If most of your content is binary, such as applications

# or images, you may want to use "application/octet-stream" instead to

# keep browsers from trying to display binary files as though they are

# text.

# Virtual Hosts

#

# If you want to maintain multiple domains/hostnames on your

# machine you can setup VirtualHost containers for them. Most configurations

# use only name-based virtual hosts so the server doesn't need to worry about

# IP addresses. This is indicated by the asterisks in the directives below.

#

# Please see the documentation at 

# <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/vhosts/>

# for further details before you try to setup virtual hosts.

#

# You may use the command line option '-S' to verify your virtual host

# configuration.
 

#

# Use name-based virtual hosting.

#

NameVirtualHost *:80
 

#

# VirtualHost example:

# Almost any Apache directive may go into a VirtualHost container.

# The first VirtualHost section is used for all requests that do not

# match a ServerName or ServerAlias in any <VirtualHost> block.

#

<VirtualHost *:80>

    ServerName localhost

    RewriteEngine On

    ProxyVia Block

    ProxyPreserveHost On

    RewriteCond C:/Inetpub/wwwroot/%{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f

    RewriteRule ^/(.*)$ http://localhost:81/$1 [P,L]
