You can install Apache on a system to strip the SSL layer, but in the 
diagram above it appears that your internal server is still running 
HTTPS. If you just want to route HTTPS sessions (which are encrypted and 
cannot be viewed or acted upon in any way) then you just want a firewall 
with port forwarding.
If you actually want to decrypt and then re-encrypt (why??) then you can 
do this with mod_proxy and mod_ssl...
