I'm not sure I'd say it's 'rare'.  But it depends on what your application
is.  For example, an ASP network really doesn't have "clients" the way we
think of user PCs.  So there application for a web cache may ONLY be for the
servers.  They think the user-centric version is 'rare'.  In an enterprise
network, the focus is on the users, not the servers, so the opposite may be
true.

In the CCIE R&S lab, I would agree that the application for server caching
would be unlikely.  Not to say that it will never show up though.  You know
the "anything is possible" rule!  :)

That's why it's good to understand the technology though.

Hi Scott,

   Thanks, I think I understand the case.

   I think Web-cache is mainly used for improve the reponse when client
access the web server. It is rare to have a cache engine to be located at
the same network as the web server, but still it is a valid case.

   Thanks a lot.

Best Regards,
William Chen
