Yes, on all "reverse proxies" as far as what I'm considering a reverse
Here is a status list.
For a site that is internal to us (www.morainepark.org) and I
accelerated it through BorderManager it works perfectly.
Authentication is done through BM.
It's the authentication of for these "reverse proxy" sites that I'm
trying to get to work. Remember, this is where I'm trying to get
external students access to these sites that think they are actually
on my campus. These sites do a lookup of the source IP and says "Hi
Moraine Park Technical College".
This reverse proxy setup I'm working on will allow students to do this
at home. Now, that part is working until I enable authentication.
I don't want to use actual names since these sites offers full copies
of books at the click of a button. So assume the web site is
And I also access these sites using a URL redirect. I have a DNS
entry for "www.bordermanager.myschool.edu". I can't use
www.novellrulz.com" because that will go directly to their site and
thus it will not say "Hi Morainepark Technical College". :)
1) If the accelerated name is "www.novellrulz.com" and enable
authentication is off and I access it via
"www.bordermanager.myschool.edu:81" from home it works fine.
2) If the accelerated name is "www.novellrulz.com" and enable
authentication is "ON" and I access it via
"www.bordermanager.myschool.edu:81" from home I will get an error in
Netscape 6.21 (because IE errors are worthless): Connection was
refused when attempting to contact www.novellrulz.com:443". So it
looks like it's trying to access 443 on the actual web site when it
should be doing 443 on the Bordermanager box.
3) However, if #2 above is done ON MY LOCAL LAN (where I"m not at
home) then authentication works. That's the kicker I don't get!
4) If I rename the accelerated name to
"www.bordermanager.myschool.edu" and access it via
"www.bordermanager.myschool.edu:81" then I get the login screen but
after login it will redirect to the www.novellrulz.com which then
doesn't think I'm at the school (i.e. it's using the IP address of my
home PC). It also ignores the ACL list.
The URL at the top of netscape says this:
So, there you have it!
