Hi,

i have my DC running on windows 2003 sp2. it is our dns and dhcp server. besides i have installed wsus and clients are getting updates from this DC including our branch offices. i have manually confgiured all clients local gpedit.msc and added this DC address to server location.
also since remote users are getting the updates using our wan link the access becomes slower quite often which i need to avoid. hence how can i configure the wsus updates through group policy in order to have clients getting their server automatically without manually giving them. also i need to avoid remote users geting updates thru wan link instead i can sedn through any media cdrom or so. so only lan users will be pointed to the dc directly. is thereany scritp to remove the server name from remote clients that i already configured

I would first try throttling BITS and see if that resolves your bandwidth issue enough for you

You could also set up another WSUS server in any of your other remote branches as a Replica server.
While setting up this second WSUS server be sure to select "Do not store updates locally"
Then you point all your remote clients to this second WSUS server and they will then download updates from Microsoft instead of over your WAN.
