yes, there is even a way to have the server use it itself.
the trick here, is to specify in the /etc/urpmi-proxy.conf file the mirror
you'll be using manually, and then removing repos on the server and adding

squid is indeed good, for urpmi i still recommend urpmi-proxy, as it'll be
much nicer because it can tell exactly which is new and which is recent.
