Sorry if this sounds like an amature question, but I would like to have a solution in place where the installation files are on a local server so that the package can easily be pushed out without having to use bandwidth and copy from the management server?

Windows Server 20008/2003 (64/32)

Windows 7 Clients (64)

I know we have the option of using the BIN folder to push an exported package locally but it would be nice if this was automated.

Thank you in advance.

HTTP or HTTPS based installation wouldn't be too bad. Kinda like file connect.
