But reality told me it doesn't!
One Mime-type error for the css file: Stylesheet 
http://freedombox.local/cockpit/static/branding.css wasnt'loaded, 
because MIME-Typ, "text/html", nis not "text/css".
A JSON Error:
SyntaxError: JSON.parse: unexpected character at line 1 column 1 of the 
JSON data

<Location /cockpit>
         ProxyPass http://localhost:9090

Didn't work.

> Auth is no Problem. Cockpit uses system users like fbx or ldap users can also be used for accessSo SSO works out of the box also on port 9090 without apache. This 
experience and first impressions are very good.
