Local Cache of website to improve speed

Posted on 2011-02-28
Last Modified: 2012-08-13
We have a website that we access and its load is slow. I was asked for now to cache the local graphics that load up with the page. user images etc.... so only the content can be pulled down. as most of the pages on the site are normally generic.

I would like to know how to apply this change on a proxy server using win server 2008R2

The site has bad peering from another distant country. we will be bringing the server internally soon after testing.

any assistance would be appreciated

Do you have an ISa server in place ? if you you can use it as web proxy/caching...

if not, you can use "http watch" to identify the source of the problem...

1) IS the site a public site which we can see?
2) I am assuming you are using IIS 7.5
3) Have you read any of the IIS 7.5 documents found:

or just

I know the information is daunting, but I think we can work through it and get what you need.

Let me know on the above and we will continue.
