Re: WGW 7.x windows update fails


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.
