Created local HTTP repository for AutoUpdate without ePO - Kachow!
Ok so this may get a bit lenghthy:
Goal was to get our clients that DO NOT have Internet access talking to a local server to get updates, and we didn't have ePO. So I decided to try and "trick" the autoupdate to think it was talking to McAfee online by doing the following:
Wrote a batch file and used a scheduled task from a server that had Internet access to download everything off of McAfee's site daily using WGet and put into C:\McAfee:

Thanks Deepak. The info in your post helped me achieve a similar thing.
In my case the servers that needed updating were in a DMZ and only had port 80 open to the LAN. I was therefore very limited in what update services they could access.
So, much like your FTP instructions, I instead created a website on a server on the LAN, set up a scheduled job to FTP the NAI update area down to it and publish it. I used WinsCP to perform the synchronisation as WGET didn't do that very well.
I then created a new Autoupdate task in Viruscan console on each server to get its updates from this http server. All seems to work very well.
