JavaStation Client Software Guide

Proxy Cache

Most corporate intranets implement a secure HTTP proxy system comprising several HTTP servers. The way the proxies are set up can have a significant impact on JavaStation browser performance. If a single proxy server is used for a large number of users, it can become a bottleneck and a single point of failure. If it is located at another site or across a busy backbone network, it will greatly increase the response time for network requests from the JavaStation computer. One solution to this problem is to make the JavaStation boot server into a proxy cache for its clients.
