Is there an easy free software that I can use to push windows updates to all clients?
I do not want to use WSUS.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Free?? Then your only choice is WSUS. Why in the world would you not want to reap the benefits of WSUS ?

I have not tried this program but wuinstall has a free version

I prefer WSUS but if you are looking for something different this might be worth a try.

Wuinstall is good, but gives you no control over which updates get installed and reporting like wsus does

OK. This is my dilemma. I have a 2003 server which has wsus installed. I'm not familiar with it but the problem is that I do not have internet on that server (not by choice).
The only way I could download patches is from another computer, then placing patches onto ext. hard drive.
Can i import patches from ext. h/d to the wsus server? If yes how
