Make sure the configuration AUTOSTART=1 in /etc/default/apt-cacher.

Now restart the machine, and check the apt-cacher service via following command:

$ ps -ef | grep apt
www-data   825     1  0 20:34 ?        00:00:00 /usr/bin/perl /usr/sbin/apt-cacher -R 3 -d -p /var/run/
$ sudo netstat -anp | grep 3142
tcp6       0      0 :::3142                 :::*                    LISTEN      825/perl

Now when you setup the machines, point the http-proxy into this machine, it will automatically cache the packages.
