Is there a way to configure a client who connects to the network Remotely  to get approvals for UPDATES from the internal WSUS server but download the updates from the Microsoft server?

you could set these in the Group Policy, if there is only a single or couple users, they could have their own OU to apply these settings to such as to not affect the local domain users and the WSUS Server

I use group policy now to deploy the WSUS. But the problem is I cannot figure out which settings I use to get it to be authorized internally from My WSUS server and download from Windows update.

Hello Thank you for your comments.  My goal is to have WSUS supply updates to local machines but for remote machines to have them get there updates from Microsoft.  So I am clear it seems that I cannot have both.  It is either all machines get their updates from WSUS or Microsoft.
