That works, thanks. Its now sending proxy requests. The other server's still rejecting them, but that's a problem I'll sort out on my own.

Once  I'm certain I've got the entire pipeline working I'll exchange the (ok) test for checking for the presence of an attribute coming back from the sql query, and proxy if it's not there.
