can anyone tell me how to use the WSUS. I got all the updates sync-ed but I can't get the client PCs to be seen by the WSUS server. The only machine the WSUS sees is the server itselt. I have a small domain at home of 5 PCs and none are seen. I put the server update address http://server name and comes up like a bad address. can anyone help with configuring this. I looked at the helps in WSUS and did what is says but nothing. The client PCs have no problem connecting to the domain. Runnig windows server 2003, clents are xp pro and win 7 ultimate.

Forgot to say that it's not like connecting to a Windows Update website it installs them silently in the background.

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

No, it should download next time it's online.

The group policy changes need to be applied to a group policy that is applied to the computers.
