I need help setting this up. It almost works but not quite. Instead of taking me to it goes to https://localhost:9090/sabnzbd

Machine 1 = Windows 8.1 with Sabnzbd https://localhost:9090 (SSL)
Local IP
Machine2 = Ubuntu 14.04 Server with Apache
Local IP
Both Machines on same external IP

a2enmod proxy
a2enmod proxy_http
a2enmod headers
a2enmod rewrite
a2enmod ssl

sites-enabled = 000-default.conf | default-ssl.conf | servername.conf


<VirtualHost *:80>
   Redirect permanent /


<VirtualHost _default_:443>
   Header always add Strict-Transport-Security "max-age=15768000; includeSubDomains; preload"
   ProxyRequests Off
   ProxyPreserveHost On
   AllowEncodedSlashes NoDecode
  <Location /sabnzbd>
    order allow,deny
    allow from all
SSLEngine On
SSLCertificateFile /etc/apache2/ssl/mycert.crt
SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/apache2/ssl/mykey.key

If you have port forwarding set up properly for your network so that requests to port 80 and 443 are routed to machine 2 and those for port 9090 are routed to machine 1 and your domain is pointed properly this should work as you expect. If you are running this on a home network, there is a very good chance that ports 80 and possibly 443 are blocked by your ISP as it’s fairly common for ISPs to block these and standard mail ports.
