    Windows Patching Ports and Protocols

    Michael Grant

      Can someone help me define the port and protocol (TCP/UDP) that are needed for Windows Patching. A customer has requested this information before creating a rule on the Firewall. I currently have the following:


      WIN - - http://xml.shavlik.com

      WIN - - http://download.windowsupdate.com **

      WIN - http://download.microsoft.com **


      • If using an IP Address Microsoft recommend doing an NSLOOKUP from the server that will be accessing the IP to get the best address as it’s based on your location.


      I am specifically looking for the Port and Protocol for Microsoft Patching.
