Not really an exchange topic, better to post it into the windows 2003 area.

But is there any firewall between your client and the update server, which blocks the traffic. Also have a look a t windows firewall. Additionally, your browser may make trouble, if the enhanced security option is enabled (software setup), whioch blocks nearly every active content.

Thanks and I'll be more careful about where I post. I removed the "enhanced" IE security feature from add/re windows components - our firewally guys say that nothing should be stopping it. Do windows updates have a tendency to trip up checkpoint firewalls?
BembiCEOCommented:
I don't think so, the mechanism of firewalls are all similar, nevertheless a few of them may have additional filters.

What you may do is, add the update sides

http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/
http://update.microsoft.com

to the trusted site zone in IE, just so see, if this is a local or a firewall issue. This should allow to run ActiveX Controls and Java Applets.

Also, if you use Windows XP SP2, have a look at the local firewall settings, may be you can temporary disable it (as you have a firewall in front anywhere).

After changing the site settings, you have to close all browser windows.
