Help with ProxyPass

Hi all,

Having some difficulties getting the syntax correct with a proxy situation. I have connectivity into my home to a Apache webserver that has the appropriate proxy modules loaded but I can't seem to get it to do what I want it to do.

Host "mail.mwaa.com.au" is forwarded to my home router, and port 80 is routed to This server is running Apache 2.5, and in the httpd.conf file I have an entry like below;

ProxyRequests Off

<Proxy *>
Order deny,allow
Allow from all

ProxyPreserveHost On
ProxyPass /
ProxyPassReverse /
ServerName mail.mwaa.com.au

My internal host, mail.mwaa.com.au is an Apache server on, and as you can see I'm trying to get to by typing http://mail.mwaa.com.au in my browser.

The above does not work, all I seem to get is the default "Welcome to Apache" page that is served from

Any ideas?
