    I would try puting the firewall in interactive mode first so it will prompt you for everything.. see if that fixes the issue. I had a similar problem with NTP and that means I could not sync the time...I cloned the default rule and added non-trusted zone and now everything is working.

    After making any changes to your firewall, you can always go here and test for security...

    the firewall was in interactive mode because i liked controlling things but a few days ago i noticed windows update hadn't pestered me in a while so i reverted back to automatic filtering and that seemed to fix the problem..

    I had the issue a few minutes ago with mine in interactive mode as well. It gave an error that tied directly to being blocked by a firewall. I did not get a log or window to allow the traffic so I just scanned for updates again and things are now working... have been for the last few update scans after installing MS programs....

    Could you fill in the integrated customer care support request form and submit it so that we know what rules you have created? In the description field enclose the url to this thread.
