Windows 2008: Windows update doesn’t work behind a proxy


I just installed a Windows 2008 behind a proxyserver  and i saw that it couldn’t update.

To solve this issue you can do the following:

  • Run the Command Promp as Administrator
  • Type netsh
  • Type winhttp
  • Type import proxy source=ie

Now Windows Update will ask you for a username and password before it wants to check for an update.
