Question Scenerio Questions and solutions

Hey forum ,
I request you to please comment on a scenario and open source support available for that.
I have a server which sits with static content . That sever cannot with stand high traffic from outside world so I m thinking maintaining a cached copy of the stuff on someother powerful server . This copy expires every 24 hours.All the site updates will done on the smaller server and Bigger server will contact smaller server once a day to refresh its cache.
Do u see any thing like that in open source world.
I already have sync ( rsync) scenario in mind but that gives a copy to us.....instead can we use a caching here?

Basically, have a look at Squid. It's a caching proxy which will only contact the server if it doesn't have the page in it's cache.

Thanks .. but I cant use squid

Thanks for the suggestion. I looked into squid earlier. Problem with squid is once u start running it as proxy server.. they need to configure the browser which will be accessing those cached sites. I dont want to let anybody ( on Internet) know that my main content is in small server and Only Big server faces the Internet( public) serving cached copy of my stuff .
Is it possbile to have squid cache a copy of the mother machine( smaller server having content) and pose on Internet( outer world ) that I m the original keeper of the this content ?
Just like a public machine A leech the content of private machine B and serve to this Internet world.
That leeched stuff is a cached copy...
