Can the Reverse-proxy running on a local-network PC #1 retrieve a web-page from the internet, requested by a browser on local PC #2, making appear to PC #2 that the web-page was actually local (not coming from the internet)?

xytsrm,

This could be done if you will "revers-proxy" a single Web site on the Internet. If you can give us a better described use case, we will provide you with the detailed steps to achieve the setup.

Here's a hypothetical example streaming videos to a browser; assuming a single website (e.g. Youtube). Is is possible for a browser behind a proxy to search the YouTube website for videos, select a video and have it stream to the browser? However, the browser should only see the webpage responses as coming from a local network address and not from the actual YouTube domain.

xytsrm,

In such a case, get an IP address of one of Youtube servers. Use it as the back-end IP. Add the following HTTP header to the reverse proxy definition:

Host: youtube.com

And do your tests. Youtube being overly complex (with several page components downloaded from different servers), chances are that not everything could be reverse-proxied.

By the way, you could do the test with google.com which is less complex in that regards. It works just fine and could be almost fully reverse-proxied.
