Sorry for the delay, this got buried and has only just resurfaced.

For a local Apache (ie local to the machine running JBoss), a
non-stunnel'd config has something like

  JkMount /folder/* workername

in httpd.conf, and


in mod_jk.properties (the JkWorkersFile file)

For a remote Apache, you don't need to change mod_jk.properties. But
instead of having JBoss listening on port 7003, you have an stunnel
client, with a config something like

  accept  = localhost:7003
  connect = jboss-server:17003

And then on your local server, i.e. the one running JBoss, you have an
stunnel server:-

  accept  = 17003
  connect = localhost:7003

(You might want to consider how best to stop the rest of the world
connecting to port 17003. I do it out at the firewall)

Don't know a thing about BigIP boxes! Good luck.
