Thank you and I will start looking at apt-proxy.
Most likely I won't (currently) need anything more than apt-proxy.
BUT, when I decide to open my connection to others (I am one of the
few that has more than dial-up in my area) what will I need to do to
allow them to install/update from my LAN? It won't happen for a while
(two months at least) so I will have plenty of time to study up on
what is needed.
(seriously, I am not trying to be difficult. I just don't have anyone
else to ask)
Ok, I'm just offering a suggestion as I'm not tottally sure what you
want and maybe apt-proxy will work. But to save bandwidth on my network
I use apt-cacher. It stores files that one machine has downloaded and
lets all the other machines use those same files. Just an idea and
sorry if this is no help to you.
