I love my transparent HTTP proxy. I have a bunch of Ubuntu machines/containers that I update and having the packages cached locally makes it much more pleasant.

I realize this is a dying method and will go away (for good reasons), but I'll miss it.

@ted what do you use for that? I'm kind of in the same situation and would appreciate not downloading packages thrice.

@federicomena I have a pfSense router that has a package for using Squid for it.

I'm sure that you could use Squid on other routers/setups the same way.

I know that at UDSes (when they existed) Canonical IT setup squid transparent proxies as there were a lot of people on that network hitting the package servers 😃
