I work in secure environment and I am trying to get the required ports opened up so I can download patches from Kace.com and am having difficulty in getting this down with the FW adminstrators. Is this anyone else out that that has had this problem with getting the necessary ports opened up so the KBOX device can download updates from Kace.com. This has been a nightmare and the Jumpstart training that Kace has been put on hold until the patches have been downloaded to the KBOX device. Any help is greatly appreciated.

KBOX has an "offline patching" feature for closed networks. It requires two KBOXes: one on an open network, and the other on a closed. You set the KBOX on the open network as the "source" and the one on the closed network as the "target". The KBOX on the open network downloads patches and places them on the patch file share. You can put them on transportable media and move the media into the closed network, loading them into the KBOX on the closed network via the patches file share.

This may or may not solve your problem, depending if you have an open network you can install the KBOX on.
