    I had make sure that the firewall do not block the download from microsoft web site.I download only one update to in order to update one client(in group).

    The following are my testing environment:
    1.Window 2000 server
    2.Client:Windows XP Professional SP2

    It take 4 hour to download a update from Microsoft web site and haven't complete yet.My network connection bandwidth is 256Kbps.Does anyone have idea on this? As I am running out of idea on this....

    p/s:MadMatt, it is me again..please help!!

    My wsus still cannot download the patch to update the client.
    Here is the attach of WindowsUpdate log file from the client.I see no error there.But while downloading, The app log and system log in event viewer in my wsus server keep showing ERROR message in a cycle.I am suspecting this is a way to track why wsus server fail to download the client.After reading the error,I still have no idea.Can anyone help?

    The Wsus server can download the patch file already.It is the DNS Domain server problem.

    Did you fix the DNS server then?

    Sorry I didn't jump in. I never saw this thread.

    It is ok, Madmatt.:)

    I reconfigure the whole DNS server again.By the way I have few question to ask here:
    1. I had find out the file size for each individual update is very big.By having 5 updates to download, it take about 300MB something.But from what I know, Windows XP SP4 patch file take about 130MB something but can update many bugs and enhancement at a same time .I would like to ask that does the update file size in WSUS is huge for each individual update? I list down the file size of some update here:
    Update Size
    a. Security update for Windows 2000 (KB896424) 33.39MB
    b.Windows 2000 SP4 rollup 35MB
    c. Security Update for Windows XP (KB896424) 59.5MB

    2. Is there a way for me to know the update file size for each individual update rather than going to the home page and deduct from the total update file size to be downloaded?
