[squid-users] Generell Squid setup

Hi list,

I'm a little confused about the various configuration options of
Squid. I have the following setup:
Internet clients <-> remote Web server [WS] <-> different remote Web
servers [R1], ..., [Rn]
[WS] processes the data; [R1], ..., [Rn] provide the data

The clients send requests via http-post to [WS].
[WS] translates the requests and retrieves the required data from
[R1], ..., [Rn] via http-get. [WS] processes the data and sends the
responses to the clients.

The (requests of [WS] and) the responses of [R1], ..., [Rn] should be
cached (inside [WS] surrounding).
The number of web servers [R1], ..., [Rn] is relatively small. This
should lead to many cache hits.

I have two suggestions for discussion:
(1) normal Squid cache; [WS] acts as a kind of client; [WS] is the
only client of Squid Proxy; the requests of [WS] would have to be
redirected programmatically to Squid Proxy,
(2) reverse proxy (with httpd-accelerator mode).

Are these options suitable? Which (other) squid setup would you recommend?
Is (1) possible without programming?
Which configuration (from http://wiki.squid-cache.org/ConfigExamples)
should be chosen for (1) or (2)?

I gratefully appreciate any advice.
