Hi all,

Our central networkadmin set up a portfiler which blocks pretty
much everything, with the result that I can't access windows update
(WU) anymore.

AFAIK WU uses port 80 initially to connect, but what about after
that? Are there any other ports that need to be specifically

He's requested info on what ports WU's using, except for the
initial port 80 is normally open anyway.

Can you guys help?

Thank you.
