I don't believe that you can make the Apache proxy module do that.
I do, however, know that CERN running as a proxy can do this, in fact,
I've done it. I had a client that was running a CERN proxy in their main
office, and wanted web access for their field office. The field office
was connected by a demand-dial ISDN link (it was a Pipeline 75). A local
CERN proxy at the field office forwards requests to the big corporate
proxy, and then keeps a local copy. After a couple of days of the link
being up a lot, usage went way down.
If I were you, I'd look into Squid, and see if it can do the job, it's
*much* faster than a CERN...
