It can be done using the MirrorFrame,
You have to create a FramedResource, named "swiki" AND PUT  MirrorFrame
(org.w3c.jigsaw.proxy.MirrorFrame) on it.
In the configuration of this frame, at the bottom, you have "mirrors",
where you have to put the URL of the host you want to mirror, in your case
http://www.ourhost.com:8888/
After doing that, you can bump the number of connections on this host,
a Proxy property should apprear (in the properties tab), set max
connections to 80 (depending on your server load, usually the default
should be ok).

See
http://www.w3.org/Jigsaw/Doc/Reference/org.w3c.jigsaw.proxy.MirrorFrame.html
for more information about the mirror frame.
