Wsus clients not updating from wsus server

The installation procedure for WSUS differs quite a lot, depending on whether we’re installing it on Windows Server 2003 or 2008: This will download the WSUS and install all appropriate roles/services, so we don’t need to download WSUS or install “Web Server (IIS)” role manually; this will all be done automatically.

The first step basically tells us what we need to do before configuring WSUS, such as properly configuring the firewall.On the left side of the WSUS window, we can also select “Security Updates” and chose to select any security updates.When pressing the “Refresh” button, all appropriate security updates will be shown to us, as displayed below.After that, we need to apply the configuration options we made to the local group policy with the gpupdate command, as seen in the picture below.We can see that the computer policy was successfully updated.
