Mod_proxy_balancer mod_rewrite permission issue

I started the mongrel_cluster and tried to use the RewriteRule to
the requests to proxy_balancer just as the said.
When I visited my site from a remote computer, I always got the error
messages “Forbidden, You don’t have permission to access / on this

Finally, I added the “Allow from all” property (in the vhost config
just like this:
<Proxy balancer://mongrel_cluster>

    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
then the "Forbidden" problem was solved. The "all" could not be changed to "" or others. I guest this should be related with the implement detail of the mod_rewrite.

My question is, could this “Allow from all” be a latent security
and is there anybody faced the same issue?
Could I miss something through the configuration or did the
document miss something?

I am sorry my English is not very good.

Best wishes everyone,

I searched and found someone got the same problem 1 year ago:
But it seams he finally used the ProxyPass instead of RewriteRule, and
not actually solve the problem.

I hope my solution will give some possibility to fixing the same
