Does anyone know where I can get a comprehensive list of the servers that are accessed for Windows Updates?
I have a situation where I need to limit access to Windows Update to a single device among hundreds from a firewall at the edge of the network. As I understand it Windows Update traffic is all port 80.
Realistically, I only need to block the servers enough to stop the update happening, not necessarily every single server.
I think it is likely that MS is using Akamai or some other service to manage its update load so the solution needs to *only* block Window Update.
Yeah, I realise there are countless more strategic ways to lock this down than a block rule on a firewall but this is what I need to do, so don't feel you have to list alternatives that don't include some sort of rules on a firewall :)
