Host cannot download files from VMware vCenter

Every time I try to scan a host with VMWare Update Manager I get:

"Scan Entity

Host cannot download files from VMware vCenter

Update Manager patch store. Check the network

connectivity and firewall setup, and check

esxupdate logs for details."

Update Manager works fine for scanning virtual machine; but not hosts. Update Managers is set to use the ip address and the hosts and Update Manager are on the same subnet.

Does any one have Ideas on how to fix this?

Have you enabled the Update Manager Port on the ESX firewall?

I am running ESXi on all of my boxes. I have VMware vCenter Agent and NTP Daemon running and don't see where to enable Update Manager though the firewall or any entery for the firewall at all.
