OSX 10.5 Software Update Server Address

Hi,

We have an OSX 10.5 Server that needs access through a firewall to the Apple auto update service but in order to do this we need to know the update server address/ports/destination ip etc... does anyone know this information?

Thanks.

I think it's swscan.apple.com 17.250.248.95 not sure though

I believe software update only uses http, so TCP port 80, which should be open by default.

giving a firewall rule for a single IP at Apple's end probably won't work.  Apple no doubt makes use of an array of servers
