I have a web site set up as an ASP reseller.

Basically, the way things work, is people sign up to use a web application on my site, and I buy it from a wholesaler.

My problem is that the site that actually provides the application is generic, so that it can support multiple resellers. On that page though, the "Home Page" link, takes you to the wholesaler's home page.

Since there's a web application involved, I can't just copy the html and put it on my site.

I was thinking that if I set up Apache to proxy the site, it might work -

You go to [service.mysite.com...] , and it proxies [service.wholesaler.com,...] and as part of the proxy, I can re-write the link to www.wholesaler.com to point to www.mysite.com

Would this work? The application is run as a SOAP / Java Application, or as an ActiveX control.

You could use a proxy system that re-writes the urls and you could use php/asp or any language to parse the pages and re-write.

You can look at some of the open directory scripts to see how they snag the pages, re-write the urls and make it look like yours.
