Hi Philippe,

Chaining of Spacewalk Proxies is possible and allowed. Communication 
always starts on client side, resp. from first (local) proxy to the
second one.

There should be no special configuration neede in proxy setup.
Just install Spacewalk server then "second" proxy (one closer to server)
then "first" proxy (and use "second" proxy as a server for this one).
