I'm trying to use IIRF to open my internal site to outside. Internal site has RedMine installed (<cite></cite>) on port 7777. The problem happens after login: the internal site returns status 302 and location http://rmcomp:7777/redmine. When I look into response from site with IIRF on computer named ext_comp, location field contains http://rmcomp/redmine instread of expected http://ext_comp/redmine

version v2.1.1.9


ProxyPass ^/redmine/(.*)$          http://rmcomp:7777/redmine/$1

Does IIRF suport ProxyPass to non-default ports?

With best regards, Vladimir.

Sure, IIRF can proxy to non-default ports.

Currently, though, IIRF does not massage the response headers from the proxied site.

If the proxied site responds with an HTTP 302 , that is what gets returned to the requester, without elaboration or transformation.

There's an open request to implement the transformation that would do what you want.  See

Thank you, I look forward for ProxyPassReverse. Do you have any assumption when it may be ready?

Yet it should be noted, that some transformation still happens: when result comes from the original site, location is http://rmcomp:7777/redmine with PORT #. Response obtained from the site with IIRF contains location http://rmcomp/redmine WITHOUT port #. It was obsereved via Fiddler.
