    Have been lurking for a considerable time but find this list very
    useful. This is my first post so go easy.

    We have some clients who use a satellite downlink and a dialup uplink.
    Internet Explorer is set to use the local host as the proxy and with
    some software (Tellique) automagically uses the satellite for incoming
    data. Tellique gets an IP address for the satellite link dynamically.

    For some reason, and this is the first time it has happened that I know
    of, Windows Update bypasses the proxy settings and downloads the XP SP2
    update via the dialup link. Does anyone have an explanation or hopefully
    a solution?
