    It sounds like Untangle won't consider this. Think of a situation where in an education environment where there are about 200 pc's. All pc's need adobe and updates, Microsoft updates and many others. Why have multiple ways when all you need is one. We have IP Cop software running at the schools because of this.

    School 1 has downloaded 7.5GB of updates and has distributed over 9TB to users through the Update Accelerator.

    On a 6 meg line how long would it take to download over 400GB and for how long would users be at a stand still on the internet if there was nothing to cache the updates?

    This functionality would be unbelievably awesome. In fact for the web cache to be at all useful it would have to do the exact opposite of what it does now. i.e cache large objects not small ones.

    There is history here though. Untangle have taken a stance against caching and i doubt anything will change.

    Thanks all for your comments. It looks like many agree it would be a cool feature for caching updates, but less useful for Dropbox, Office 365 etc. due to those services reliance on ssl. We'll see if Untangle decides if the update caching aspect warrants any future attention.

    Cheers!
