Windows Updates not finishing - DansG and pfBlockerNG?
Since implementing a pfSense firewall with Dansguardian and pfBlockerNG, several PCs here now aren't completing their windows updates OK.
At least 3 different PCs have been stuck on "configuring windows updates" in the morning, and I strongly suspect this isn't a windows issue but something being blocked on the firewall.
The updates themselves are working, and I have all the sites I can think of whitelisted. It's just after the forced reboot that the PCs are hanging.
I have studied the sarg logs and firewall and whitelisted:
Also in File is:
In pfBlockerNG I am only now denying Inbound access on Asia and Africa, plus a few from the top 20 not including UK or USA (which isn't in that list in any case - well done US!). Can't quite believe UK is in top 5 spamming countries but that's another discussion…..in any case outbound access isn't denied on anything for now.
Any ideas on other sites to whitelist or do I need add the "Config" microsoft sites to "File" too?
thanks in advance
Maybe try this?
