apt-cahcer ip address configuration
I have recently installed apt-cacher to serve my local machine
(including a ia32 chroot) and another machine on my LAN.
The problem I am having is I cannot seem to connect to the local machine
from the LAN unless I specify the IP address of my 'server' explicitly
# optional setting, binds the listening daemon to one specified IP. Use
# IP ranges for more advanced configuration, see below.
This is fine, but it means I have to use the external address in the
local machine /etc/apt/sources.list instead of localhost. There seems
to be a speed penalty for doing this, presumably because it has to use
the Router attached to the LAN to resolve the IP.
The default configuration is not to specify any IP adress and then
netstat shows it listening on 0.0.0.0:3142. Then my client on the LAN
can't connect, but localhost works fine for both the amd64 install and
All machines use Sid and are up to date with self compiled 2.6.16 kernel
from debian sources.
Thanks in advance for any insight.
