So I enabled TLS on the Server 2008 R2 WSUS server and that fixed the issue with my 8.1 clients not getting updates except for Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010.My SCCM server deploys the client fine but it is version 2.1 and normally the client and definition updates come from WSUS with the latest client version being 4.5.

forefront not updating windows 7-21forefront not updating windows 7-14forefront not updating windows 7-36

NOTE: It looks like Forefront is getting the definition updates just fine but even if I do a manual Windows update check the client/AV Engine updates do not even show up as an option.

Nothing in the update logs that I can see to shed any light onto the cause.

If you're using Windows XP, see our Windows XP end of support page.

For a list of the latest updates see the change log.

However, my Windows 8.1 machines will not get the client updates even though they are automatically approved for all machines.

I am just wondering what else I can check or change to make sure my Windows 8.1 clients get the Forefront client updates as they should??

My freshly installed Windows Server 2012 installation with Forefront Endpoint Protection (FEP) installed just wouldn’t update.

Googling the error message gave me a lot of ‘you’re infected’ posts.
