Hi there,
I need to implement a proxy server that accepts incoming HTTP request, modifies the header and then forwards it to destination server. The difficulty I'm facing is that the proxy server must not modify the IP of the incoming request packets, such that destination server sees the requests are coming from the client machine.
Any idea how to do this? Thanks a lot in advance.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
