    Question

  • I get an error 0x80072EFD on a Windows Server 2003 server when I try and run Microsfot updates, I tried sevreral fixes like updating the BITS software, disabled Symantec antivirus, I added all the update.microsoft.com sites to teh trusted list in my web browser. I checked my host file don't have anything microsoft related, flushed dns, I don't have a proxy running. I have 2 other windows 2003 servers on the same network and those update fine.

  • Do you configure any settings to block SSL in your environment? As I know, if SSL is blocked by Windows Firewall, you may get the above error. To resolve this, please take the following steps to open the port 443:

     

    1.     Open Windows Firewall.

    2.     On the Exceptions tab, click Add Port.

    3.     In the Add a Port dialog box, type SSL in the Name box, type 443 in the Port number box, and then click either TCP.

     

    Alternatively, you could run the following command to open port 443:

     

    Netsh firewall set portopening TCP 443 “SSL”
