Mod_security reverse proxy
If I setup one proxy server with mod_security for reverse proxy to 3 more Apache web servers behind, what problems with hosting websites can I experience? I mean is every component of websites (scripts, flash, images and other website parts) will load normally like it will in normal situation then router forward 80 port to a single apache web server?
Anyone? Is nobody use this reverse proxy feature in PFsense?

I'd be interested to know this as well. My web server just got hacked, and this looks like an awesome tool to help prevent intrusion.
Implement this for security reson is well know solution. But I affraid that various website could not translate data right.
I remember then I got two indentical web servers. But their communication was different. 80 port was forwarded directly to server A and
the second one (B) got just apache redirection from A. I installed comments commponent into my website CMS which resides on B and it's not work.
Then I transfered all website to A server and everything was ok. So my question, do similar problems with reverse proxy can arise in most situation or just in
a very very very rare cases ?
By the way let's take example of online internet proxies servers. If you enter website URL and try to open website in most cases I have tried look of website was messed up.
I bet that there is people using this mod_security feature :) I plan to move on this architecture several hundreds domains.
Do you imagine a couple of hundreds phone call that it's something wrong with there inserted flash, or fancy PHP script not work :)
Any comment will be very appreciate.
