Thank you for your suggestions Steven. Unfortunately i need mod_proxy because i need to redirect requests to another web server in another port.

Besides disabling mod_proxy, I would like that apache does not respond to this requests as they will generate traffic responding 404.

Regards

Alejandro

I would like to suggest ... starting with Apache itself and unload, remove, disable any mod_proxy modules and directives ... it does no good to establish mod_security rules to block a service that you don't want running or understand how to control. I would do that with all modules you don't understand and "park" or eliminate all virtual_host configurations that you yourself have not set up and understand completely.


This is a p-2-p post ... Steven
