Apache Module mod_proxy_connect

Available Languages:  en 

Description:mod_proxy extension for CONNECT request handling
Module Identifier:proxy_connect_module
Source File:proxy_connect.c


This module requires the service of mod_proxy. It provides support for the CONNECT HTTP method. This method is mainly used to tunnel SSL requests through proxy servers.

Thus, in order to get the ability of handling CONNECT requests, mod_proxy and mod_proxy_connect have to be present in the server.


Do not enable proxying until you have secured your server. Open proxy servers are dangerous both to your network and to the Internet at large.


This module provides no directives.
