    The other server's I have built have worked fine - just this one giving me grief

    Anyone seen this before?

    Thanks

    I fixed / it fixed itself.

    Used a spare ADSL line that does not go through a proxy and windows update ran fine. I then updated the machine and the connected it back up to our network.

    Ran windows update again just to see what would happen and then it suddenly started working??

    There was a patch called winhttp blah blah blah which I remember looking at a while ago which allows authorised access through a proxy or something like that.

    Anyways I can't be arsed to investigate but will look into it when I have the same problem

    Thanks
