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 - 22.214.171.124 - http://xml.shavlik.com
WIN - 126.96.36.199 - http://download.windowsupdate.com **
WIN 188.8.131.52 - 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.
