thank you. I am familiar with apt-cacher, but  not with approx which I can 

However, I think that does not solve my problem. For instance
what if the A computer is running etch and B-D are running sid?
How can I get B-D to get software that has not been installed on A?

Is there some smart way to set up a direct tunnel through A
and tell  apt-get to go through the tunnel itself, instead of using
these caching methods which better serve other purposes.
(For instance since B-D run sid, I can cache on one of them for the others.

what software-backbone/port is apt-get using to get the software? 

Are you familiar with setting up tunnels like

ssh -ND 8080  user@destination.com
