looking for a way to centralize game updating RRS feed

  • Question

  • hello,

    i'm currently running a network composed of 6 six computers and 1 server

    the server is running windows server 2008 R2, it's a domain controller and I've also got xampp installed on it for two web sites (xibo and another).

    the 6 six computers are all linked to the domain and they each auto log in to their own account (pc1, pc2, pc3,...)

    on these computers are installed games that need to download update some even have weekly updates, if all of the computer download their own updates it kills the internet speed.

    so what i'm looking to do is to centralize the updates on to one computer what would be the server I've installed the games on the server and the other computers

    all i need now is a system, script, service, synchronize, proxy, role or any other way to update the games files on the other computers
    i would rather that this is done when the computers start up

    I've already tried launching the games from a network drive on the other computers but i can't launch them multiple times 

    another thing that i would like is that they only update the files (copy whats needed) that way it will take less time to do and to limit the use of the network

    any solution are welcomed
