    Question How to set up Software Update Server with local network?

    Hello,
    I first use MAc OS Server 10.6.2, I just want to set up "Software Update Server" with local network.
    I mean that manual download software file for client to install. But I have no idea how to set up. Anything I find out is use internet for "Software Update Server".
    Or someone have ways to resolve this problem or via proxy to figure out.

    Which part of setting it up are you having trouble with? Have you turned on the "Software Update" service in Mac OS X Server? Have you configured the clients to connect to your server for updates? Here's how:

    Tons more information and walk-throughs available with a super-simple Google search, such as:

    Please tell us at exactly which point in the setup process you're having trouble with.

    Transparent local software update server

    Another option that is very useful if you manage a lot of Macs, including laptops, is to create a transparent local software update server, as explained at Mac OSX Hints.

    We've had one running for some time and it save gobs of bandwidth and time. We don't have to touch anyone's computer to make them update from our servers - as long as they are on our network, they download from us. Even those who have their own laptops (tons of students). It takes some time to set up, but it's very worth it.

    Because my Mac server behind a authenticated proxy.
    When I turned on the "Software Update" service, show me error information.
    <Info>: ========== Sync Started ==========
    <Error>: Unable to retrieve catalog(s) from the Apple server
    <Info>: Sync Complete

    The solution from apple can't help me. http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3099

    Now I want to download the update packages manually, and copy to folder on server.
    How to do?

    Thanks!!
