Thanks for all the info.

I'm puzzled though that a such a transaction isn't possible by rewriting the
headers. So client X connects to my PS, which passes on the data to the
target but with the header changed to indicate the PS as the original
source. The intended target responds to the PS, this is then resent to
client X with the header modified so that the transaction appears
transparent. So it's *effectively* transparent target>client but
non-transparent client>target, if you see what I mean.

Can you please explain why this wouldn't work?
