    Update server


    I was wondering if it was possible to have an update server running like M$ has for windows with their WSUS server, but i would like to do this for Linux clients, so not every linux computer has to download them themselves from the internet.

    The reason i ask this is because i am planning to implement a few ubuntu classes at my school (finaly had approval from the direction ) and if every one of them goes download them theirselves i most certanly will see my traffic go way.

    I was thinking of setting up a mirror from the ubuntu update server, but don't know if this is possible at all.

    all help will be welcome.

    You could run a mirror as described in this article about becoming an ubuntu mirror, but i don't know if you want some control over which packages are available ?
