    Are you having all your XP clients go straight to the net to download updates? You could check the windowsupdate.log file on the machine to see what site(s) it tries to connect to.

    Hiya!

    In smoothwall (if i think its what your talking about)...

    In the "Do not require authentication for these domains" box on the authentication - settings page in Guardian, add the following domains:

    windowsupdate.microsoft.com
    update.microsoft.com
    c.microsoft.com
    download.windowsupdate.com
    genuine.microsoft.com

    No - its to make the "build" process a bit easier.
