  • Hi es sbihi mohaned,

    In order to use WSUS server to deploy updates for remote clients, we need to ensure the following points:

    1. The WSUS clients get the correct configuration to make WSUS URL to the internal WSUS server;

    2. Ensure the WSUS clients have network connection with the internal WSUS server.

    If the clients are not on VPN, then, how do they access the internal WSUS server, if not, then internal WSUS server is unable to serve remote clients.

    Best Regards,
