Re: redirect apt to local repository
Did you look at apt-proxy?
just did! it looks great, as does apt-cacher, but I would very much
like to require no changes to the client machines, which will be moving
from the classroom to students' homes very soon. Thes students are
mostly absolute newbies, so I'd like to avoid rewriting any conf files
So probably I need something like a DNS server (which I guess I need
anyway) that redirects requests for archive.ubuntu.com to the webserver,
which in its turn has a virtualHost listing for that address.
