Hi all,

At the moment we have no control over Windows updates on our networks. They are just set to auto update.

I have 4 sites that I plan to have local WSUS servers setup. My main problem is remote users. I have a number of laptops that connect via VPN daily, and some very rarely. SO my questions are:

1) What woudl be the best way to configure for laptops?

2) I was going to setup group polices for the different site severs filtered by IP scope for each site, is this a good idea?

3) Current WSUS server is 2008 wsus3 sp2 - should I upgrade to 2012 now for Win 8.1 compatibility?
