  • How to update DMZ Windows Server box with no connection to internet ?

    Hi All,

    I’d like to know how do you implement Automated Windows server updates if your DMZ Windows box doesn’t have access to the internet but only have access to production site and to your LAN only.

    I tried to remove the proxy server information from my Windows Server 2008 R2 internet settings but it seems that I cannot get it updated automatically from WSUS?

    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    AWT

    use gpedit.msc on the dmz server to configure your WSUS settings to point to you local WSUS server.

        This link gives the registry settings to point non-domain members at a WSUS server:

          no worries, we do this on a few machines that i refuse to put onto production domain (pabx management, building management stuff) mind you i found some of these by accident so there was quite a lot of updates required on some (135 was the record from memory)
