Apache reverse proxy to Domino (CAC Authentication)

I am very new to both Apache and Domino.  I have been tasked with using an Apache front end to pass SSL traffic to our back end domino server for CAC authentication for our users.  I have been able to successfully proxy a client through to Domino, however the request does not maintain the CAC header information.

So effectively what I am trying to do is:

client -------> Apache -------->Domino  (443 all the way through)

I realize that when doing this it acts as 2 separate SSL transactions and to deal with that I am trying to use mod_header in apache to pass the CAC information.  When doing this I keep receiving this error:

"Proxy client certificate callback downstream server wanted client certificate but none are configured"

I have tried some of the other solutions on these forums but still nothing is working.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!!
