Software Update Services (SUS)
For campus computers only*

*Ein-Kerem campus users: Those who have joined the new (EKMD) system should not do anything - the process has been completely automated.

Updating your campus PC using SUS (Software Update Services), configures your Windows for automated updates of Microsoft security patches from HUJI's software update server. The advantage of this service is that patches are tested prior to distribution. Since the patches are hosted localy in our network, the update procedure is much faster than obtaining the updates from Microsoft.

Software requirements: Windows2000 (Service Pack3), XP (Service Pack1 ) or Windows 2003.
Download: http://ca.huji.ac.il/bf/auconfig1.8.exe
Note: Fresh Windows installation on old computers (Up to Windows XP SP1) should never be connected to the net/Internet prior to updating Windows from a CD (which can be obtained from our support centers). Only after updating from our CD, install SUS.
