Mobile devices have difficulty in sustaining various services as in a wired environment, due to the storage shortage of the mobile device. The research[8] which provides remote storage service for mobile appliances using iSCSI has been conducted to overcome the storage shortage in mobile appliances. In research the proposed cache server performed well with relatively small files of sizes, however, did not perform well with large files such as database files, multimedia files, etc. The reason was the mobile device could not grasp the file as a whole and thus the cache server encountered frequent cache miss in spite of its huge buffer. In this paper we propose a proxy server that accommodates large files for mobile devices thus attains very high hit ratio.
