Apply updates to my Windows Server 2008 R2 offline.

Last Modified: 2015-03-01
Hi Experts,

I would like to apply windows updates to my Windows 2008 R2 server. It is not connected to the internet and can not be connected. Does the Windows Server Update Service (WSUS) provided by Microsoft work for offline servers?

I have been looking at 'WSUS Offline Update' provided by http://www.wsusoffline.net/ and 'Portable Update' provided by http://www.portableupdate.com/ as non microsoft offline updater software but would prefer to use a microsoft service if they provide one.
