comment Using iptables to redirect according to pattern-matching (--string)
mod_rewrite does not work with external processes. I could use the server on 80 as a proxy for the server on 4444, but this would mean an http connection between the two. I'm streaming a lot of data, and that would hinder performances in a serious way.

When I test this rule from an external server, though, the connection is perfectly successful (netcat returns with its control string from port 80). Shouldn't it be disrupted? Shouldn't the packet with the http GET eventually forwarded to 4444 and NOT to 80, preventing netcat on port 80 to receive the GET and answer me?
