I have a red hat linux web server.
On the web server are web pages with activex controls embeded in them.
The activex control has a parameter for ip address.
This ip address points to a video server at our clients locations.

The goal is to stop web users from being able to view the source and
get the ip of the video server.

One idea is to put a "fake" or local ip in the ip address parameter of
the activex control...  Then have something on our web server redirect
that local ip to the public ip of the video server at the clients

We have iptables installed on our linux web server if that could be
used to forward a fake address to the real public one.

Clarification of Question by kmax1940-ga on 20 Jun 2006 09:11 PDT
The activex control also has a command port and a data port.
So if we cant just forward one ip to another....
We might have to forward each port to the public ip of the video server.
