tsnet on Mac doesn't follows htaccess rewrite rule

LC 8.1.7: I have updates for one of my programs (Win & Mac) on my webserver
located. Because it's a shared webserver I wanted to put my updates to AWS
S3, since AWS has a better performance and a web server actually isn't a
file hosting server. Now the update request of all my programs out there at
my customers point to my webserver. I put a rewrite rule into my htaccess to
point the update requests to AWS. That worked instantly great with my
windows program, but my mac program stays at "connecting to server" and
doesn't goes on downloading the update file. Obviously the Mac version of
tsnet doesn't follow a htaccess rewrite rule.


Can anybody confirm this?

Can I differentiate a htaccess rule by the system of the client request, so
that I could at least redirect all windows request to AWS and let the Mac
requests stay on my Webserver as a partial workaround?


Thanks for any ideas
