Block Windows 10 updates over VPN

Hi

I'm looking for a way to prevent Windows 10 from downloading updates over a VPN connection, what is the most efficient way to configure the VPN connection as metered? Is it possible to configure a block on an IP range in WSUS?

Kind regards

Glenn

Can't just set it as a metered connection?

Hi Shimshey

That would require a user interaction and I want it configured by default.

Kind regards

Configured "where?" if not by user interaction?

What we do: decide whether the connection is LAN or WAN (=VPN) by looking at the ping latency and simply disable windows update when not inside the LAN. This can be scripted and requires no user interaction.

Objecting to closure, because I have a new idea while re-reading the question part "Is it possible to configure a block on an IP range in WSUS?" - surely! Use the firewall at the wsus and create a block rule in the incoming section that blocks access to the scope of your IP range for the wsus ports (normally port 8531). Just what you are looking for.
