Perhaps I don't understand what you want, but this doesn't make much
sense to me.   If I had to guess at what you are saying, then perhaps
you have some people accessing the site from an intranet and others
accessing it from the Internet.  If they are using different
hostnames, then you can replace with %{HTTP_HOST} to
make sure they stay with the same hostname.

Otherwise, apache has no control whatsoever over the network path
between the client and the server.
