Jigsaw (W3C's Java webserver) might do the trick, see
http://www.w3.org/Jigsaw/Doc/User/proxy.html Setting up Jigsaw as a proxy.
Jigsaw installation instructions are at
http://www.w3.org/Jigsaw/Doc/User/installation.html (also requires Java)

Unix fans might prefer Squid, http://squid.nlanr.net/ eg as used at
