  The server doesn't magically know to forward packets.  You have to *tell* it to forward packets.

  The default configuration does this.  You've edited it so that proxying doesn't happen.  Why?

  The sites-enabled/default file has a "preacct" section.  You've deleted the "suffix" module from that section.  Put it back.

  You also need to configure that file to write packets to the detail file in the "Post-Proxy-Type Fail-Accounting" section.  See the end of that file for details:

Post-Proxy-Type Fail-Accounting {

  And you MUST use the *same* detail file which is read by the "robust-proxy-accounting" virtual server.  This will likely mean using mods-available/  Again, you will likely have to edit it for your local site.
