We are stationed in Germany with the Air Force.  Unfortunately, our internet connection is so slow it drops the connection before Symantics update is finished.  We have a desktop and a laptop computer.  We acquire the updates on the laptop at the library, via their wireless server which is 100 times faster than our home internet.   What are other options to acquire updates, i.e., can we download the update on our laptop to a thumb drive and update our desktop?  We need any advise you can provide.  Thanks!

 This should have been in Forums section under Endpoint Protection.

however if you have SEPM and SEP client then you can download JDB fusing the laptop and update SEPM that will update clients

If you are using SAV then download XDB and update SAV primary server and it wil update rest of the clients.

If your clients are unmanaged download rapidreleases definition and put on a thumb drive and update the clients

You will generally get a higher response rate if you post questions in the forums area, but Vikram is obviously on top of this one!
