For Apache software behind a DMZ, what products would be a good choice for proxy or tunneling services.

Does Apache itself provide this.  I was reading about Apache Common Proxy, but it seemed like more of an interface, rather than an executable agent

depends on what you want to do. I have a solution on hand where a tunnel is set up from a linux host to another linux host, and the mod_proxy module used to alias http://server/otherserver/ to http://localhost:tunnel/ so that requests are forward on to another server (that is out-of-the-box apache, with a bit of scripting to restart the tunnel if it drops)

What apache app performs that.   Is it the apacher server itself, or a separate module altogether.  How would I invoke this.  Could it be used by ActiveMQ or other apache products.

it is the apache module mod_proxy and hence part of the httpd.
