Setting Up A Debian Packages Proxy With apt-cacher

Setting Up A Debian Packages Proxy With apt-cacher

There are many ways to install a Debian Linux but the most common is certainly to use the net-install 160MB CDROM. You can download it from http://www.debian.org/CD/netinst/. Booting up your PC from this CD, you will be capable of setting-up a basic Linux system; downloading updates, extra softwares and language support directly from the Internet. But using this method of installation on more than one PC in your LAN results in a massive waste of your precious bandwidth. Therefore, maybe you should consider using a cloning utility like “Sysimager”. But, as it is most likely that every computer will be slightly different one from another one, you should consider setting up a Debian Package Proxy as a long term solution.
