I am generally involved in a task where I need to download/install/remove/configure packages a lot of times as I experiment those packages. Every now and then when I break my system I just re-install it from the Debian repo through the internet. Now downloading packages from internet takes time (at least if you are starting from scratch.)
What I would like to do is to copy all the packages from the Debian repos (the Debian mirror) on to my machine at my home (I have a spare computer for this.) and then I am planning to do apt-get install just as the way we do usually with the only difference that this time the packages will be pulled from my home machine (whatever the IP is) instead of ftp.debian.org or something like that.
How can I achieve this?
I have found this link but I am not sure if they are what I am looking for or is there any better pointer:
