Just have an VMware Update Manager 4 installed, but it failed to download any patches. I already have network team open up our proxy on port 80/443 to allow this server connect to *.vmware.com, *.shavlik.com, and *.microsoft.com. From this server, I have no problem with IE browsing these three websites. Test Connection still won't work since proxy is still not allow ICMP packets to ping.
When I checked Update Manager's log, I found the following messages. Does anyone know what might cause this? Thanks in advance.
Error 12007 from WinHttpSendRequest for url https://hostupdate.vmware.com/software/VUM/PRODUCTION/index.xml

I don't know what else to say, but thank you.
I think I ran into this KB before. Tried it, but it didn't work. That was the time I sent request to our network team to have those three domains open up in our proxy. After they did, I removed the proxy setting in VMware Update Manager. That was the time, IE worked on those websites, but Update Manager didn't. While I was trying to reply you with a "not working" after I saw the KB you mentioned, something in my mind told me to try it anyway. Guess what? The Test Connection works for the first time. When I clicked on Download, I could see it start downloading patches to the local folder.
