Setting Up Your NuGet Package Source

Assuming this is for internal use only, your best bet is likely going to be creating an internal nuget server or creating a network share (the network share is considerably slower than the nuget server) to house all of your NuGet packages.  If this is meant to be externally accessible, then you might want to consider letting NuGet host it.

For a cool and practical example, we created a network shared folder on our build server.  Every time the package builds, we have a nant script that packs and sends the package to the shared folder.  Voila!  NuGet now knows of the new version.
