Windows Software Update Services doesn't require the end-user to be part

the source for updates by changing a few registry entries and make sure
the server is available via HTTP or HTTPS to your customers. You can
read more at Microsoft's site.

Also, WSUS is free to run on any Windows server.

Great if you're running a windows IT type LAN; crap if you're running an ISP!

Why? It talks TCP/IP.
