    your entries will most likely never match. The default rule for "global whitelist" only looks into the host of a URL (URL.Host property is used). For



    the URL.Host is



    Your entries contain the protocol (http://) which is not part of the Hostname, and therefore they won´t apply.


    Try to remove the protocol, and only leave the hostnames as part of the list entry.

    Hi ´╗┐doubstar,

    it also depends on the client or server system which is connecting to Microsoft. Windows Server 2003/2008 and all Client Systems are quite different.


    Perhaps this helps.



    You can also user Application Control for Whitelisting Windows Update.
