Now I'm back to 60 Minutes, and it still works - when I come in in the morning, I just wait for 60 minutes before I try an 'apt-get update' and 'apt-get dist-upgrade', because most of the time we have to switch off the boxes over night :-(
Waiting the 60 minutes in the morning is probably not necessary. Also, I set my proxies to 240 minutes, but that is personal preference (in my case I have an old slow machine acting as proxy). Why do you need to shut down the machines? That seems very strange. Is it company policy? unreliable electric power?
HTH,It did - and I appreciate it. Thanks again.
Glad it's working out so far. -Roberto
