Hello folks

I'm wanting to minimize bandwidth to keep a couple of very similar local 
machines updated?

Realise this is an often asked question, but wondered if a networked 
cache location was something that could be set in yum.conf?  In 
combination with keepcache=1, this might minimize bandwidth with a 
simple "yum update -C" from any local machine?  (What determines how 
long headers and packages are kept by default?)

Many thanks,
Morgan.
