WSUS 80 or 8530 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    In my WSUS console I see that the connection is made to port 80.

    I have set a Group policy so that the clients get the updates, like this: http://wsus-server.domain.com:8530

    So, should I remove that "8530" ?

    The issue is that the clients won't appear in the WSUS console, not even after typing "wuauclt /detecnow" or "wuauclt /a /detectnow" or "wuauclt /report /detectnow" , "wuauclt /resetAuthorization" , and so forth.

    There are no firewalls involved and the client pings the wsus server.

    Thanks in advance.

    On WSUS 3.2 and earlier, WSUS server use port 80 for HTTP and 443 for HTTPS

    On WSUS 6.2 and later (at least Windows Server 2012), WSUS server use port 8530 for HTTP and 8531 for HTTPS

    If we are using WSUS 6.2 and later, we need to append the port number in the URL in GPO, for example, http://wsus.domain.com:8530 

    If you meet other issue, feel free to ask.

    Best Regards,

  • I just found this: wsusutil usecustomwebsite true

    I  must wait now to see if this works. I think it will.
