Not sure if I am using the right terminology, but I want to create a forward proxy that will allow me to substitute locally controlled content for some of the requests eg a specific remote javascript file (which I wish to debug).

My normal approach would be to save all html using a browser, but this site is very dynamic with ajax etc and I am unable to save a decent replica.

I imagine this can be done using a proxy setup with some specific requests being diverted to a local web server, but I'm not exactly sure how that should be done. I can set up a forward proxy easliy enough, but don't know how to get mod_rewrite or whatever to interfere with the proxy.

Im trying to configure the proxy_balancer, but still having problems. Here is my configuration:

BalancerMember http://172.16.14.81:80 
retry=120 
timeout=10 

BalancerMember http://172.16.14.82:80 
retry=1 
timeout=10 
status=+H

But when The first worker fails, request are not redirected to the failover worker. For this I have to wait for more than 7 minutes. Is this behavior normal?

I have two virtual web server and only one IP for the host. So the need of some kind of proxy server.
Whitch one should I use? (apache, nginx, varnish, squid)

I need also the same for smtp (two postfix), if possible the same one :-) basic config?

I have one host , one IP and two domain, one for each virtual machine and the result I want:
abc.org[188.165.211.22]--->abc.org[192.168.50.2]
xyz.org[188.165.211.22]--->xyz.org[192.168.50.3]

consider this scenario:

PC1 wants to telnet to SRV1 tcp 40000.

I would like to put a proxy in the middle that receives the connection, rewrites the destination, sends packet to a local socks proxy (redsocks).

So the scenario would be:

PC1 --> PROXY tcp 20000 [iptables rewrites destination to SRV tcp 40000 --> redsocks 127.0.0.1 tcp 12345] --> SRV1 tcp 40000

I tried:
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp -s $MYSOURCEIP --dport 20000 -j DNAT --to $SRV1:40000

It works, but I know it doesn't go through redsocks. I just changed the destination for the packets but how can I force them to flow into redsocks?
