No need to worry about your English, we are not native English speakers

Although a bit of understanding in Python does not hurt, but is not
absolutely necessary.

The most important is to take care about indentation. When a block is
started (either if, def, or class statement) the enclosed block _must_ be
indented consistently. E.g.

def Zhttp():
	# this must be indented by the same amount
	# as this line
	# increasing indent without the start of a block is 
	# forbidden

Yes, reverse proxy configuration is certainly possible.

As I see the example you are using as your policy file is a bit outdated (it
seems to be a policy for Zorp 0.6)

I include my fixes in your policy file below.

no comma is permitted after the Zone definition.

comma is not allowed here either

Here you made a mistake in your indentation. the correct function definition

def Zhttp():
	Service("INhttp", INhttp,
		router=DirectedRouter(SockAddrInet('", 80)))

	Listener(SockAddrInet("aaa.bb.cc.ddd", 80), "INhttp")

That's it. The preferred way of creating multiple instances in a single
policy file is to create a function named the same as the instance.

So as you had an instance named Zhttp in your instances.conf file, I created
a function named Zhttp(), this takes no arguments.

The function named init() would also work, if you write an init() function
the instance specific function would not be called, as you override the
default init() function provided by Zorp.

Here's a complete policy file:

from Zorp.Core import *
from Zorp.Http import *

Zorp.firewall_name = 'zorp@bcpc'
InetZone("cpc", "",

InetZone("local", "",

InetZone("internet", "",

class INhttp(HttpProxy):
	def config(self):
		self.transparent_mode = 0

def Zhttp():
	Service("INhttp", INhttp,
		router=DirectedRouter(SockAddrInet("", 80)))

	Listener(SockAddrInet("aaa.bb.cc.ddd", 1555), "INhttp")

Hm... I've checked this and I've found no anomalies, can you show your dpkg
-s output for the packages you installed?
