Can the patch download only use port 443?

Hi Guys,

Can the patch download only use port 443? Port 80 cannot be used due to security restrictions.

Need to download the Microsoft security patch, other patch not needed.

URLs Required for Patching Functionality (post 10.0)

Below are the URLs used to update patch listings. Please whitelist these in your firewall for ports 80 and 443 (HTTP/HTTPS)

The download URL is provided by the vendor. Although it may have HTTP, most of the servers will redirect to HTTPS URL.

Can you define a firewall rule to open outbound 80 from the IP of the SMA?
