    The easiest way is use a reverse proxy; this way you do not have to make any code changes and your users can rely on software they already know and trust for this purpose.

    Reverse proxy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge
