Hello list,

Just joined because I want to make an Arch Linux mirror in Costa Rica, 
but I am not sure if I can meet the requirements, mainly of bandwidth, 
here is a short story:

Currently at work there is a server I no longer have use for, its an HP 
proliant ML110G6. I would like this server to become an Arch mirror, our 
Internet connection here is 9Mbps/9Mbps.

- Is that bandwidth enough for a public mirror?
- Will setting up this server choke my network?
- Can I use the server for other stuff? say a web server for local 
development or backup server?
- I have an Arch laptop, can I download packages from this mirror while 
I am at work using the private IP address?

I have read [1] and [2] regarding this topic.
