Portsnap runs over HTTP, and respects the HTTP_PROXY environment variable. If
I understand your concern, using a local HTTP proxy would be the best option,
since it would use far less bandwidth than actually mirroring everything.

By "server-side", do you mean
a) The code which builds the portsnap files,
b) The code which mirrors them, or
c) The web server (Apache) which actually sits on port 80 and
communicates with the portsnap client?
