help proxie type thing

i was wondering if theres a way to redirect

torrents out there that are using as the announce URL and the new announce url is

Since those requests are coming in on port 80 (the same port I want to run the webserver on), I'm using Apache to Proxy those requests. That puts a huge load on Apache (processing up to 300 requests at a time).

I want to know if there is a way to redirect all HTTP requests for "/announce" or "/scrape" to port 2710 BEFORE those requests reach port 80.

Here is my current Apache config:

<VirtualHost *:80>

DocumentRoot "/www/"


<Location "/announce">
ProxyPass http://localhost:2710/announce acquire=1 smax=100 ttl=6
<Location "/scrape">
ProxyPass http://localhost:2710/scrape acquire=1 smax=100 ttl=6

In my Apache Status window, I'm seeing a LOT (LOT!) of requests FROM for "GET / ". I have absolutely no idea why.
