Goal

DMZ Configuration with Oracle E-Business Suite 11i has provided a very good example of how to configure Oracle E-Business Suite 11i in a DMZ, under the assumption that Discoverer is running on the same node as Applications Mid-tier.

For Discoverer 10g, the option is either installing Discoverer 10g in a different ORACLE_HOME on the same Applications Mid-tier or installing Discoverer 10g on a different server.

In order to install Discoverer 10g on a different server, Discoverer specific configuration needs to be handled by reverse proxy,so that it can forward Discoverer requests to a new Discoverer 10g.

This document provide an example of the configuration, which is illustrated by using Apache HTTP Server as a reverse proxy.

Apache HTTP Server (Reverse Proxy) --- https://www.example.com
Applications Middle-tier --- http://extweb.example.com:8000
Discoverer 10g --- http://mydiscoverer.example.com:7777

As a result, you will be able to access Discoverer 10g from
