You haven't said anything about the target environment - Portlet 1.0, 2.0 or vendor specific - or whether their are any restrictions on the local or remote servers.

Writing a portlet that converted a local request into a remote request and relayed the response shouldn't be hard.
Liferay also has a portlet which supplies a simple iFrame wrapper on a remote page and the portlet source may be available in the community edition. See for details.
I agree. Here's the link:
