How to configure apt-get/aptitude server on ubuntu


Hi...everyone,
Is it possible to configure apt-get/aptitude server on Ubuntu O/S like yum server on on RedHat. If yes, could anybody post the urls so I can follow those and can reduce the internet usage by installing basic softwares on every PC.

When I had many Debian machines I used apt-cacher-ng as proxy to the official Debian repositories. This way the packages were only downloaded once and after that delivered to the machines that requested them directly from the proxy.
