This article describes building an internal <application>FreeBSD Update Server</application>. The <link xlink:href="https://svnweb.freebsd.org/base/user/cperciva/freebsd-update-build/">freebsd-update-server</link> is written by Colin Percival <email>cperciva@FreeBSD.org</email>, Security Officer Emeritus of FreeBSD. For users that think it is convenient to update their systems against an official update server, building their own <application>FreeBSD Update Server</application> may help to extend its functionality by supporting manually-tweaked FreeBSD releases or by providing a local mirror that will allow faster updates for a number of machines.

Introduction
Experienced users or administrators are often responsible for several machines or environments. They understand the difficult demands and challenges of maintaining such an infrastructure. Running a <application>FreeBSD Update Server</application> makes it easier to deploy security and software patches to selected test machines before rolling them out to production. It also means a number of systems can be updated from the local network rather than a potentially slower Internet connection. This article outlines the steps involved in creating an internal <application>FreeBSD Update Server</application>.
Prerequisites
To build an internal <application>FreeBSD Update Server</application> some requirements should be met.
A running FreeBSD system.
At a minimum, updates require building on a FreeBSD release greater than or equal to the target release version for distribution.
A user account with at least 4 GB of available space. This will allow the creation of updates for 7.1 and 7.2, but the exact space requirements may change from version to version.
An <citerefentry><refentrytitle>ssh</refentrytitle><manvolnum>1</manvolnum></citerefentry> account on a remote machine to upload distributed updates.
