2000 Server updates fail via remote control software such as Term Svcs and PCAnywhere

Windows updates fail whenever I log in via Terminal Svcs or PCAnywhere (as Sys Admin) and attempt updates.  Where do I start with this?  Am I doing something wrong or is this just a security issue that cannot be worked around?
Thanks,
John

Hi jbguest,
What's the error message you get when you try?
Can you run an update from the Server when connected normally?

The error message is "No Updates Were Installed.  The following items failed to install.  To try installing them again, click Review and install updates, and then click Install Now again."
This error appears no matter which driver or update I attempt.
I also just attempted the updates while standing at the server and they failed without Terminal Services "in the equation"....

Yes you should be able to install updates remotely. Do you have SUS in place?

Found the answer through another posting on the 'net....turns out our third party firewall vendor was blocking windowsupdate.com for us.  Once we instructed them to allow the site, updates succeeded.
Thanks for the help!
