I am building an Ubuntu server in a Sandbox VM environment. The only system that has access to the internet is the Windows WSUS server. I would like to use this same server as an Ubuntu update repository site for the Ubuntu server I am building in the sandbox. Is this possible first of all? If it can be done, could someone give me some pointers on how to get this started. This is my first Linux setup so I do not know any of the commands yet, I am building this to learn Linux for my company. I have setup an Ubuntu Desktop and now an Ubuntu server and I need/want to keep them updated. I just have to do it through this Windows WSUS server if it is possible. Thanks in advance to anyone that is willing and able to help.

Almost forgot, I can't use the WSUS server as a proxy server so there is no way to get this server access to the internet.
