How to connect a client computer to WSUS 2012

29 Nov

In previous iterations of Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), your group policy would point to your WSUS server with the following:

http://<server name>

eg: http://wsus

But now, with WSUS in server 2012, you have to specify the port number. The port number is 8530. So in your group policy, you would specify the following:

http://wsus:8530

eg: http://wsus:8530

Once you have refreshed your local group policy or allowed it to apply itself overtime, you will then be able to receive updates from your local WSUS 2012 server.
