I was under the impression that apt-proxy was used for serving packages that one had downloaded for a particular machine. So if I had downloaded "pingus" for my child it would be available, but a package not previously installed would need to be downloaded from the internet like normal.
Can I use apt-proxy with debmirror (I am mirroring Woody, Stable, Testing, and Unstable for three architectures) for my local mirror?
I promise I am not trying to be difficult, this is just an area I have never looked into and I am not sure about the best way to proceed.
I have also received an email saying that I might want to look into using a local FTP server, so I will add that to my list of possibilities.
How are others accessing their local network mirrors?
