Netscape Proxy Server will do what you're looking for. It's got a
reasonably powerful reverse-proxy mechanism. I've actually never tried to
do path-specific hiding...although I suspect there are probably hidden
problems with doing something like that. However IP/hostname
reverse-proxying works great. I'm not sure what other industrial-strength
reverse-proxies are out there. I think I saw something once about an
Apache module that'd do it, but I've not personally looked into it.
Hope this helps...
