Software Update Services not updating clients to XP SP2

I've installed and setup Software Update Services, setup my group policy and approved SP2 for updating.  Unfortunately, clients aren't getting the update.  I can see in their logs that they are checking the correct server but apparently are not registering that there is an update available.

I've looked at a number of other posts related to SUS, and I'm sure my GPO settings are correct.  Is there anything else I might be missing here?

(Error 0x80190194) is normal as SUS does not serve driver updates.  I have SUS server and it works fine, but still returns the same error.

As far as your clients not getting the updates, we need to check a few things, your SUS server and your GPO's.  Here are a few links that will get you started in the right direction:

Basic Installation
http://www.susserver.com/Articles/SUS-InstallingSUS-Basic.asp

Automatic Update Settings through GPO's
http://www.susserver.com/Articles/AU-AutoUpdateGroupPolicy.asp

How to determine if your SUS is working

Also make sure you check the Windows Update.log on a few clients and check their event logs for activity or errors.  Also be sure to check the IIS log.  Hope this helps, let me know how you make out with it.

Got it working finally.

IIS Lockdown was prohibiting downloads of *.exe files

A forum that explains it is here:

Thanks for pointing me in the correct direction of a place with the answers.
