http://www.linuxquestions.org – Greetings all. New user, first post, need help. I have been tasked with building a web caching solution for use in a remote field application where bandwidth is limited. The goal is to cache frequenly-accessed web pages for the 200 or so users at the event and thereby reduce pressure on our limited uplink.

I have chosen to use squid on a dedicated Arch Linux box built with minimal packages and my goal is to have this do nothing other than completely transparent simple caching. Configuation will essentially be: up (HowTos)
