    Hi people.

    I need to a start "Software Update Service" without an Internet connection, because in my network office we don't have a internet for security reasons.

    I have a 1 xserver intel with Mac OS Server 10.4.11, and the clients 10 iMacs intel the last white with Mac OS 10.4.11.

    In the server i need to star a Software Update Service, but I need that service dont look on the internet for updates.

    i will put the updates manually in the respective directory on the server.

    I have no problems for the iMacs i say to imacs don't look the updates on internet.

    Thanks for all.
