Re: Linux server + Problem with Windows Update and other

AFAIK, the problem is that WindowsUpdate does not obey Internet Explorer proxy definition and tryies to connect directly (via default gateway definition at local station).
My solutions:
- allow direct connections at your firewall/default_gateway to M$ WindowsUpdate servers (there are many, maybe due to load sharing). I did this, it is not nice, but it works.
- implement transparent proxy at your firewall/default_gateway.
