You can configure the LiveUpdate Settings policy so that clients only get updates from the Group Update Provider and never from the server. You can specify when clients must bypass the Group Update Provider. You can configure settings for downloading and storing content updates on the Group Update Provider computer. You can also configure the type of Group Update Provider.
You can configure the maximum amount of time that clients try to download updates from a Group Update Provider before they try to get updates from their default management server. If you set this time to 15 minutes, this means that the client computer must try to download continuously for 15 minutes with no success.
If the Group Update Provider runs a non-Symantec firewall, you might need to modify the firewall to permit the TCP port to receive server communications. By default, the Symantec Firewall policy is configured correctly.
You can configure only one single Group Update Provider per LiveUpdate Settings policy per group. To create a single Group Update Provider for multiple sites, you must create one group per site, and one LiveUpdate Settings policy per site.
