Known issues
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You connect to Windows Update through a network proxy that uses HTTPS or SSL content inspection.
    • An intermediate server is in between the SSL traffic of the client and Windows Update.
    In this scenario, you have to create exception rules in your HTTPS inspection server so that the Windows Update traffic is tunneled without inspection.
