Yes, thank you - This is exactly what i need for my family server!

I plan to have six computers running mageia 1, server included.
But having them all install and update individually will consume a bigh chunk 
on our montly internet connection data budget.

Server is mga1 64 bit - can i install urpmi-proxy there, how?

I found
Are there any more instructions somewhere?

I guess that on the client side i just remove all repos, then
urpmi.addmedia --distrib http://my.local.server.IP/mageia/1/x86_64

Can i have urpmi-proxy proxy both x86_64 repos, and i586, for the different 
clients?  And also cauldron for two (dual boot) clients?

On a side note, any tip what to use to proxy all http easily?
And if possible all youtube; my children watch many times the same film...
(But thanks to gcompris and other awesome educative games that use has
