corporate update question

I know that this subject has been covered and answered on this forum but I have a slightly dif slant on it. My organisation as with most has internet access via firewalls and Proxy servers. This appears to be my problem, without a direct connection to the Windows update site by an XP machine I do not get the options to Personalize Windows Update etc. My organisation will never go for a direct connection to the internet.

Is there any way around this issue? other than Microsoft using the good old fashioned method of posting the updates on http://corporate.windowsupdate.microsoft.com ?

thanks in advance.

Steve.

might help
Well it might help except there aren't any patches for Windows XP on the Corporate Update site. Any idea when or if MS will add them? I use this all the time for previous versions and put it on CD as you suggest.

I am not keen to run Windows Update on every machine in the enterprise!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
