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.
CONNECT is also used when the server needs to send an HTTPS request through a forward proxy. In this case the server acts as a CONNECT client. This functionality is part of
mod_proxy_connect is not needed in this case.
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.
|Description:||Ports that are allowed to
AllowCONNECT port[-port] [port[-port]] ...
AllowCONNECT 443 563
|Context:||server config, virtual host|
AllowCONNECT directive specifies a list of port numbers or ranges to which the proxy
CONNECT method may connect. Today's browsers use this method when a
https connection is requested and proxy tunneling over HTTP is in effect.
By default, only the default https port (
443) and the default snews port (
563) are enabled. Use the
AllowCONNECT directive to override this default and allow connections to the listed ports only.
