Single update server

I’m still working through the kinks on this one, but this post on Ubuntu forums seems to give good instructions for setting up one of the servers in my house as the only one to download update packages for apt, while the others point to it (saving me bandwidth costs).

I’ll post more as I figure it out, but this line is key for the other machines:

echo 'Acquire::http::Proxy "http://hostname:3142";' | sudo tee /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01proxy
