Hi,

You should utilize WSUS.

Please see this link as you will have all the information that you need to setup a WSUS server:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc720507.aspx

WSUS is for updating all clients/servers' Microsoft software over the LAN rather than over the WAN individually per workstation.  WSUS is a free download.
