Update Accelerator is an addon for IPCop
The Update Accelerator caches files from update sites automatically at the first request. All subsequent downloads of these files from other clients will be processed with LAN speed.
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.
Update Accelerator is managed by using a very intuitive extension to the IPCop
