    Don't block akmai - it will break other things. Windows update is pretty easy to bust if you block update.microsoft.com and a couple of others. Check your filter logs whilst they are updating - if you are still having trouble i can check our whitelists monday.

    I know you wanted an IP address and it appears you got that (in the end). But as mentioned earlier in the topic - could you not use GPO to disable automatic updates? Like you say, you have a method of updating the machines so surely this would be the safest way?
