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.
