Hey, just subscribed to the full catalog, and noticed when I don't have system proxy set, (No default route so need proxy to to get to internet, don't ask..) PatchMyPC is unable to sign the updates when publishing to WSUS.
Using Code signing cert from our Internal CA and is imported into PatchmyPC,

If I set system proxy again it starts working, any ideas?

Justin Chalfant (Patch My PC)

The WSUS API that we call for timestamping doesn't use the proxy you define in the application. Instead, it uses the proxy at the SYSTEM level this is why in need to set it at the SYSTEM level for the WSUS API to properly use it.


If the Publishing service and WSUS are installed on the same server, should I be getting the same result?
