apt-proxy problem


Hi,
i installed apt-proxy, created a new partition and mounted it under /var/cache/apt-proxy with "defaults". I then did "apt-get update" and installed some things (on the server). I configured the client PC, tried to do "apt-get update" and stuck waiting for the headers. When i went back to the apt-proxy server, i found no directory structure -in fact nothing!- under /var/cache/apt-proxy. Ideas?

Thanks

I'm trying to set-up apt-proxy on opensuse 10.2 and had it working for a day or so but it no longer works, but enough of my problems.

It is necessary to pre-seed "/var/cache/apt-proxy/" with the basic directories below it such as "debian","ubuntu",security", etc

apt-cacher is a good/working alternative -i think- to apt-proxy. If a packet doesn't exist in the server, i think, that it is downloaded independently by the clients. This is not good, but i am not also sure if it happens. Can somebody confirm? If this happens, would it be possible to change it and make the server cache all packages instead?

Let me ask the obvious:
On the server, have you made apt-proxy the repository?

Code:
deb http://192.168.2.12:9999/debian/ sid main contrib non-free
I recently installed apt-proxy. I did not need to "seed" the directory. It just worked.

Today, i found out it isn't downloaded independently by the client -fortunately...
