Updating remote laptops without VPN? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am not sure if this is the correct forum for this question, but I am running Windows server 2008 and generally do updates of flash/java/reader through GPO, but I have a lot of laptop clients that aren't on my network and I currently have no remote access to them. Is there a way for me to remotely update the apps I named as well as verify windows updates are done on remote machines? are there any recommendations for 3rd party apps that can do this without access to my LAN?

  • Perhaps a cloud-based management product, e.g. Microsoft Intune ?

  • Hi,

    I am afraid you could not update group policy remotely without VPN connection.
