Adding updatexlrator to packages



  • hi,

    i was using ipcop in the past, it has the updatexlrator addon:

    Even though the standard Web Proxy cache does almost the same job, there are important differences between the Web Proxy cache and the Update Accelerator cache.

    For example, it would be difficult to store, reliably, a Service Pack with a size of about 300MB in the Web Proxy cache. Unlike a Web Proxy with its internal cache and uncontrollable results, the Update Accelerator works rather in a similar way to a File Server - dead reliable and independent of any Proxy cache size or replacement strategy.

    just because i like pfsense a lot, i hope updatexlrator will be added to packages some how.
    check it here http://www.advproxy.net/update-accelerator/

    so you mean it is possible? if so, it will give excellent performance especially if there are lots of windows updater.

    No, I'm not. Looking squid package sources.
