Setting up a proxy web server with Apache

By  

A proxy web server is something of a cross between a web server and a web client. As a server, it accepts requests from client systems. As a client, it passes on these requests to other web servers on behalf of its own clients. It can be thought of as an intermediary system that sites between clients and normal web servers in order to facilitate or streamline the process of retrieving web pages. The benefits of proxy servers are that 1) a proxy can reduce the overall web traffic for an organization -- especially when people tend to access the same sets of pages and 2) a proxy can be set up to provide access to web sites when individual desktops are otherwise restricted by a firewall from accessing the web.
