ProxyPassReverse http://exchangeSrv/exchange
<Location /exchweb>
ProxyPass http://exchangeSrv/exchweb

i use it with apache 2.0.52 (win based) and exchange 2000. in some weeks the apatche switch over to an unix server.

this lines i have added to http.conf:

Listen 443

SSLRandomSeed startup builtin
SSLSessionCache none

ErrorLog logs/error.ssl.log
TransferLog logs/access.ssl.log

<VirtualHost xxx:443>
ServerName xxx
DocumentRoot "xxx"
#ver?ndert http header einer Clienanfrage
RequestHeader set Front-End-Https On
#schaltet verwendung mod_proy an bzw. aus
ProxyRequests Off
#gibt den http header host weiter
ProxyPreserveHost On
SSLEngine On
SSLCertificateFile ssl.crt/zertifikat.crt
SSLCertificateKeyFile ssl.crt/zertifikat.key

<Location />
# einbindung ext. informationen in den lokalen server
ProxyPass http://xxxx/
#korrigiert in verbindung mit proxypass die adressangabe innerhalb einer umleitung
ProxyPassReverse http://xxx/

i don't give the 3 parts exchange, exchweb and public to single locations, because we use rsa and other things combination with owa.

you have to make shure, to load the following modules:

LoadModule ssl_module modules/
LoadModule proxy_module modules/
LoadModule proxy_connect_module modules/
LoadModule proxy_http_module modules/

thank a lot for your help Sebastian.

regards tom
