I am trying to setup apt-cacher (v1.5.3) and seem to be getting some
strange results. I wonder if any apt-cacher users might enlighten me.
I'm trying to do an update from a laptop connected to this server. On
the laptop, using aptitude or apt-get update, both programs quit
with an error "Some index files failed to download" but on the server
with iptraf running, the package server is still downloading and a du
in the apt-cacher/packages dir shows a steady increase in the size of
the package directory. Is this normal? If so its very weird!
Have you found that you need to define address is allowed_hosts_6= or
does =* work alright or did you use the default =fec0::/16?
How have you setup your servers sources.list? I saw a reference to
doing deb http://127.0.0.1/package.site, but that didn't work for the
server or the clients.
Any/all suggestions on how to get this working would be greatly
appreciated. Rsync and dpkg -i xxxx work but are a bit time consuming.
I read "allowed_hosts=" as "allowed_clients=". Do you?
your missing the port number in your package listing. Mine looks like this
3142 is default port.
Substitute ip address of server on client machines.
