Updating the patch information automatically using a proxy server

You can configure Management Server to update the patch information automatically when Management Server is continuously connected to the Internet. When Management is not connected to the Internet, you can use a proxy server to connect to the SORT Web site and update the patch information automatically. Also, you can set a schedule for the automatic update of patch information on Management Server. By default, the automatic update of the patch information occurs every Sunday.
