How to setup CSS as reverse proxy server without cache server

Hi, question regarding CSS capabilities.

Is there a way to setup CSS (11000 series or 11500) to act as a reverse proxy server without caching server in place? Or is it possible for CSS to cache contents on its own?

And what is disk space on CSS used for?

Thank you.

correct.

The Cache Engine will do proxy-caching and the CSS will just forward the traffic to it.

You can't cache content on the CSS and you can't use the CSS as a reverse proxy device.

The disk space is used for - core dump files, script files, software images, ...

Thank you for clarification on disk usage on CSS. I have gone through sample config for reverse proxy caching

http://www.cisco.com/warp/customer/117/CSS_CEreverseproxy.html

Does this mean only way to have CSS to do reverse proxying is to have cache engine in conjunction with CSS?

Thank you again in advance.
