Sorry, my bad, I did have the port in my sources.list but didn't show
it in the OP. :-(
deb http://127.0.0.1:3142/mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ testing main contrib
I had to replace it tho because (this) server would not upgrade
until I removed the 127.0.0.1:3142/. Aptitude kept saying there were
no packages to upgrade until I removed it, after that, it upgraded 50
The clients work sometime for a few packages and them stop. I find a
lot of these in the error.log, on the server, when the clients try
ALARM! Faulty package in local cache detected! Removing, to be
replaced with the next download.
Sorry for not being more explicit in the OP.
