    What if i wanted to fetch the package from another mirror which isn’t in the sources.list file of APT? Will APT-cacher-ng will cache that package too??

    If not, is it possible to configure apt-cacher-ng to cache exterior repositories?

    • @Utkarsh,

      Yes, you can add any repository URL to sources.list moreover even you are allowed to use PPA repo, the same PPA repo need to be installed in all clients.

      Thanks & Regards,

    I think this is very useful to install a cache machine and I’m researching the cache server recently,

    May I cite this article to my academic research?
