Hi,

You could use mod_proxy and mod_rewrite to do this I think.

You could make your banner ad links:

http://yoursite/banners/somecode

and then add in your httpd.conf:

<Location /banners/>
RewriteRule /banners/code1 http://affiliatenetwork/banenr.pl [L,P]
</Location>

so basically they make a request to your server under SSL, and then Apache fetches the banner and returns it to them. It does mean the IP the banner program sees will be your servers, and not the clients. This may have implications.

Hope this helps,

Alex
