Apache mod_proxy_ftp

I have many web sites that work through an apache reverse proxy (ProxyPass/ProxyPassReverse)..

I wanted to try setting up an ftp the same way..

I have both:
LoadModule proxy_module modules/mod_proxy.so
LoadModule proxy_ftp_module modules/mod_proxy_ftp.so

and:
ProxyRequests Off
<Proxy *>
Order deny,allow
Allow from all
</Proxy>

and:
ProxyPass /ftp ftp://ip.address:port
ProxyPassReverse /ftp ftp://ip.address:port

==============================
This works, kind of, the files are listed, but I cannot click on them.. When I do the /ftp is dropped so the file cannot be found..

http://server:port/ftp
lists directory, then when clicking it shows
http://server:port/file instead of http://server:port/ftp/file

==================================

also, I have no clue how to use an ftp client to access via this reverse proxy..
Thanks

Hi.

You don't need ProxyPassReverse, because remote protocol is FTP and there is nothing to rewrite there (there is no HTTP Location: header to rewrite).

Try without it.

Listening on port 21 or port 80?

As far as I can see Apache is acting like an FTP server, which, when connected sends a list of files back (ls command). Try using an FTP client to access the Apache port.
