Are you talking about URLs embedded inside the pages themselves? There
isn't a way of doing this (to my knowledge) just with Apache - however
trying to filter the URLs within the content is a bad idea, as there are
so many ways of getting it wrong.

First prize is to make sure all the links are relative. If this is not
possible, change the URLs so that they are absolute but without
hostnames, eg "/images/someimage.gif".

A good rule of thumb is to make the URL on the backend always the same
as the URL on the frontend, for example:

ProxyPass /images/ http://backend.com/images/

Then everything will just work...
