If you mean will it do the proxy/caching stuff - then
do, but I think (from what I hear - I don't actually know myself)
that squid would be better ... (on shaky ground now ...)
Apache will do the proxying fine, as well as the intranet, and it can
serve the intranet externally as well if you wish. Squid will do the
proxying fine too, well, finer, it's a better proxy, more control, but
it's also more complex to tune. For a small system use Apache for both.
So I would recommend running apache for internal
purposes, (if that is what you want), on a separate machine ...
If you do run it on a separate system you have more problems configuring
personal cgi scripts and other exciting things, whereas if run on your
main system you have direct access to all the data you want, much more
fun, and still very difficult for hackers. Run Squid on a separate machie:
Squid takes quite a bit of memory.
