How to let HTTPS traffic go through the Apache HTTP server in DMZ w/o
decrypting and re-encrypting it? The HTTPS traffic comes through public
firewall port 443, and then is forwarded to the internal firewall with
a different port number 4443.

Can it be done by just configuring the http server or using a third party
software?

My understading is this is not possible. Your client browser always works with web Server in the DMZ so things get decrypted in that web server. In other words SSL communication is with DMZ web server to Client Browser. Proxy servers of course do not decrypt your data while forwarding to some other server

Try Apache mod_rewrite module if you are using Apache2.
