This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hey guys,

I've been reading the LUA implementation guide and I cross this line which I cannot understand

hosts/0/url=<full path to the update definitions directory on the central LiveUpdate server>
I know that this is waht I need to change on the liveupdate.conf file on the linux servers, but I dont know what to input inside that hosts/0/url=< input  >
Can anyone show some example of the things I can input on this line?

I found this on the link you gave:


We have our own Liveupdate administrator server, but can you tell me if it is a requirement that it should go through port 7070? and also what is clu-prod? is this default or created by the user?

I found it now, it was default, i found it on the LUA Console.  Under Configure->Distribution Centers->Default Production Distribution Center.

clu-prod is the folder that gets created by LUA. the port is 7070 default
